This 6×52 tick features a dark tan firmly packed wrapper with a fine sandpaper feel, minimal veins, tight invisible seams, triple cap and pungent tobacco and pepper aroma. First light reveals a great draw with good smoke output but only mild flavors of a plain tobacco and a bigger zingy pepper through the long finish. The first third burns well but very quickly only showing a slight creamy coffee for fleeting moments on the draw. Hitting the 1/2 way point at 25 minutes flavors finally shift with the smooth coffee taking over completely joined by a diminished pepper on the long finish. Body is still mild-medium, burn is great and smoke output is excellent. Finishing up at 55 minutes the last third continued the smooth coffee core but amped up the strength to medium, overtaking the body, giving a decent buzz from the band back.
