The pepper level in the first third was pretty off the charts. I'd love to see what this cigar is like with an additional year plus of age on it to see if that pepper in the first third mellows out as it may become a more well rounded cigar.
While there wasn't much in the way of transitions, the flavor profile that the cigar offered was good, so it stayed interesting. The cedar, cinnamon and earthiness are all primary flavors I enjoy and the accompanying flavors were good as well.
This was a very interesting cigar. The flavors and finish were clean and fresh for the first two thirds and became a little fuller in the final third. The experience was pretty unique as that fresh feeling isn't something I experience often. The strength level really fit the flavor profile.
