This 6×52 stick features a soft buttery tan wrapper with a soft even pack, small veins, tight invisible seams, large triple cap and pungent hay aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw with copious amounts of medium-full bodied smoke showing a deep zesty peppery tobacco core with a creamy texture and some spice building on the long finish of the same. The first third burns perfectly albeit a little fast. Flavors develop to a syrupy sweet wood core with the tobacco tagging along just in to the long finish where the pepper and spice pick back up leaving an oily heat on my lips to the next draw. Hitting the 1/2 way point at 25 minutes the burn is still perfect dropping the ash in 1.5″ chunks while the profile remains the same just building up the finish intensity to full. Ending at 50 minutes where it got very hot, the last third just brought in a little touch of strength to the mix.
