This 7.2×54 stick features a firmly packed dark tan wrapper with a lumpy appearance, minimal veins, tight invisible veins, large double cap and pungent hay aroma. It came wrapped in tissue paper and a 2nd large paper band. First light reveals a slightly snug draw with the most mild smoke possible showing a hint of a sweet hay and short clean finish. Smoke output is almost non existent. The first third comes up to mild-medium body with flavors of a nut, honey and grassiness followed by a short finish. Burn is very good and extremely slow even while double puffing to get any decent smoke production. The 1/2 way point comes at 45 minutes with excellent construction and burn. Flavors pick up nicely to a medium body with a hazelnut coffee and long smooth finish. Ending at 1:25 with a good bit left it hit my limit for strength, going to medium-full while the body stayed down at medium going to just a nutty earth with a deep finish.
