Wrapper: Milk chocolate, oily and smooth feel, with tiny veins.
Construction: Firm and even feel all over when lightly squeezed.
Cold draw: Hints of spicy cedarwood, honey sweetness and hay.
1st third: Starts of with a bready sweet note, combined with a cedarwood and nutmeg finish.
2nd third: The flavours keeps pretty much the same from part one, with a addition of dark milk chocolate note.
