Size: 5×52, Robusto.
Wrapper: Coffee bean, oily and silky smooth with tiny veins.
Construction: Fairly firm when lightly squeezed.
Cold draw: Red pepper and dark chocolate.
1st third: Starts with a dark chocolate, espresso, earthy sweetness and red pepper spice.
2nd third: The flavours get pretty bitter, which isn’t a surprise with notes of dark chocolate and espresso.
Burn: Burns sharp with a firm and stable gray ash.
