This 4.5×50 stick features a dark brown oily firmly packed toothy wrapper with minimal veins, tight invisible seams, triple cap and rich pepper and cocoa aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw with plentiful rich thick full bodies smoke with slightly bitter deep earth flavors going to a long deep finish joined by a pepper zing. The first third stays up there at a medium-full body while the flavors go to a very smooth creamy sweet coffee on the draw. The long finish drops the coffee and adds a tiny touch of pepper and spice just to keep it interesting to the next draw. Burn is a bit lop sided but the draw is excellent. The 1/2 way point comes at 20 minutes keeping the same rich profile. Ending at 45 minutes the last third drops the sweetness and cream when the nub goes warm, replaced by a nuttiness joining the coffe, both going in to the long finish. Construction is great and the ash holds in a solid chunk.
