This 5×48 stick features a dark brown oily slightly toothy wrapper with an even spongy give, triple cap and sweet cedar aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw with plentiful smoke production, medium-full bodied flavors of a slick, oily sweet pepper and leather with a creamy caramel like long finish. The first third burns quickly with great construction, bringing the body down to medium and dropping the sweetness. Flavors are light and smooth, with a nice zing through the finish. The 2nd third slows the burn a bit, turning down the sweetness further going to just a creamy leather. Ending at the hour mark, the last third brings back the caramel making it very smooth and slick, also adding a little touch of strength to the mix.
