Cold draw: Hay.
1st third: Starts with a toasted bread, light sweet note and sandalwood.
2nd third: Wonderfully smooth, no direct changes in taste more that they have mellowed down from the beginning.
Burn: Burns sharp with a firm and stable whiteish ash. Sadly I started to day dream a bit halfway through and forgot to take a picture of the ash before it fell, sorry.

3rd third: Keeps on the same flow as before until the very end.
