The Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust Stillwell Star Navy No. 1056 started well with a nice combination of flavors and that peated whisky as a nice supporting note. The profile dropped to average in the second third as the baking spice fell back and maintained that level the rest of the way. This is probably my favorite of the four releases thus far in the line. I could have gone for a fuller peated whisky note in the profile.

I don't know whether a smaller ring gauge or larger ring gauge is the answer, but I'd be interested in trying a new size that could deliver more of that first third.
