Wrapper: Milk chocolate, smooth with tiny veins.

Construction: Firm even feel when lightly squeezed.

Cold draw: Oakwood and hay.

1st third: Starts with a note of earthy sweetness, black pepper, oakwood and medium to dark roasted coffee.

2nd third: The black pepper notes are more prominent in the second part, otherwise it’s keeping the previous flavours.
