This 5.5×52 belicoso stick features a dark chocolate oily firmly packed wrapper with slight tooth, medium veins, tight invisible seams and just a faint woody aroma. First light reveals a snug draw with good medium bodied smoke output showing flavors of a mellow earth and cinnamon with a light short finish. The first third mellows to a very smooth mild-medium light earth with a slightly sweet wood coming through the finish. Burn is good and the draw opening just slightly. The 1/2 way point comes at 40 minutes dropping the ash in a solid chunk with no performance changes. Ending at 1:10 the last third came back to a medium body with excellent performance and burn, going to a plainer profile if just a smooth earth with no harshness, dropping the sweet notes with the finish growing very long.
