This 5×52 stick features a medium brown firmly packed glove soft wrapper with minimal veins, tight invisible seams, nice tripe cap and sweet wood aroma. First light reveals a snug draw with good smoke production showing a medium-full body of the same sweet cedar, smooth earth and pepper zing coming through the long finish. The first third goes very differently coming down to a medium body with excellent performance. Flavors are a subtle natural sweetness on the start of the draw followed by a dark chocolate cocoa on the tail end through the long finish. The 1/2 way point comes at 25 minutes where flavors are almost the same, just joined by a bright nuttiness. Finishing at 55 minutes the last third wound up at a medium body with no strength, the creamy cocoa dominating with a touch of pepper on the finish.
