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

3rd third: Cedarwood forward, the coffee notes keeps steady while the white pepper spice lingers long in the aftertaste.

Conclusion: A medium bodied cigar with a medium strength profile. While it had a good taste profile, it sadly lacked in consistent burning, had to relight it far to often even though I was puffing on it fairly frequently.
