Wrapper: Dark chocolate brown, oily texture feel with tiny veins.

Cold draw: Dried fruits that reminds me of plums and apricots, there are also notes barnyard.

1st third: Starts with a toasted brioche bun, salted toffee, candied almonds and oakwood.

2nd third: Gets notes of olive oil and white pepper spice lightly in the background added.

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

Smoke: Voluminous smoke with a cool feeling on the tongue with a medium light draw.

3rd third: In the final third the spice level increases and notes cacao powder and earthiness is the most prominent flavours.

Conclusion: A full bodied cigar with a full strength profile. Complex flavours, that sadly gets dismissed in the final third.
