Wrapper: Coffee bean dark brown, oily and smooth with small protruding veins.

Cold draw: Earthy sweetness.

1st third: Starts with a earthy sweetness, charred cedarwood, anise, cumin and clove spices and toasted rye bread.

2nd third: Notes of dried fruits like apricots and prunes with a slight pepper spice added.

Burn: Burns hasty and fairly sharp with a firm and stable white-ish ash.
