This 6.5×54 box pressed stick comes in with a dark chocolate buttery soft wrapper with a slightly soft pack, minimal veins, tight seams, triple cap and pungent manure, cocoa and pepper aroma. First light reveals a slightly loose draw with plumes of full bodied smoke showing a sweet dark chocolate, damp earth and long finished joined by a bold pepper. The first third burns very well and holds the same flavor combo, packed with a strong showing. As the first third ends, it transitions dramatically to a big milk chocolate and smooth earth on the draw, the finish gets a little shorter and cleaner with the pepper dying down a notch. Hitting the 1/2 way point at 50 minutes, it continues to transition going to a creamier chocolate on the draw while the finish gets longer, dropping most of the pepper in favor of a roasted coffee note. Ending at 1:20 the last third changes once again with a creamy dark coffee dominating both draw and finish flavors.
