Upon lighting, I get a nice mix of wood and pepper that is initially drying to my mouth, but after a few draws, these two flavors really meld together and become oily, coating my mouth. About a half inch in, the pepper really backs off and the oily woodiness remains. The amount of smoke that I am pulling in from each draw is really something to behold. The retrohale is very mild and slightly creamy. Nearing the inch mark, some pepper joins in on the retrohale while the wood flavor is slightly drying again in the mouth. As I pass the one inch mark, a bit of mustiness is found in the mouth and on the retrohale. The flavor moves to a slightly spicy cedar with the retrohale remaining musty and creamy with a little bit of grassy sweetness. Nearing the end of the third, the mustiness disappears and the cedar is now present on the retrohale as well. The strength of this third was a fair bit below medium.
