Construction: Firm even feel when lightly squeezed.

Cold draw: Light hint of cedarwood.

1st third: Starts with a smooth note of toasted bread, milk chocolate and a suave note of cedarwood in the background.

2nd third: Evoles to a cacao instead of milk chocolate, otherwise the same flavours.

Burn: Burns sharp with a firm and stable white ash.

Smoke: Light smoke with a cool feeling on the tongue and a medium thought draw.

3rd third: Keeps it’s previous flavours.
