This 6.75×50 stick features a lightly packed firm wrapper with a dark chocolate appearance, minimal veins, tight seams, rough lumpy oily feel, very sloppy cap and pungent pepper and raisin aroma. First light reveals a good draw with decent smoke output showing very mild but smooth flavors of a sweet tobacco with a long finish of the same. The first third brings up the body to mild-medium with a pepper, leather, cream and sweet tobacco combo finished by the leather and pepper combo to the next draw. Construction is excellent with a fast burn and solid ash. Hitting the 1/2 way point at 35 minutes the 2nd third drops the cream and leather going to a medium bodied pepper and smooth tobacco with the pepper zing dominating through the long finish. Ending at 1:10 the last third maintains the same profile but brings the body up to medium-full.
