This 6.5×46 stick features a dark chocolate slightly spongy wrapper with pronounced tooth like course sandpaper, minimal veins, tight invisible seams, a single cap and a damp barnyard aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw with thick rich medium-full bodied smoke with smooth aged tobacco notes of dry cocoa, a slight sweetness and pepper zing that intensifies on the long finish. The first third burns very well getting smoother, mellowing all the flavors together and coming down to a medium body. The 1/2 way point comes at 35 minutes with flavors taking on a new direction with a natural sweet cream, subtle coffee and coco and just a touch of pepper on the tail end of the finish. Burn slows with perfect construction. Ending at 1:05 the last third goes to a big creamy coffee and earth on the draw with a earthy nut finish.
