This 6×54 stick features a dark chocolate mottled lumpy wrapper with a very firm pack, small veins, tight very visible seams, an oily satin finish, large double cap and pungent sweet hay aroma. First light reveals a very snug draw with decent mild-medium smoke output of a very creamy textured light tobacco and a long finish of the same. The first third opens the draw slightly going to a medium body adding a touch of sweetness to the creamy light tobacco. The ash drops in a solid chunk, burn is perfect. The 1/2 way point comes at 30 minutes with great construction by the knots releasing pushing body to medium-full. The tobacco shifts to a musty aged tobacco taste. Ending at just over an hour, the last third ramped up the strength to medium-full giving a huge buzz outpacing the body easily. Flavors remained the same and construction was great.
