This 5.5×48 solomon shaped stick features a dark chocolate slightly mottled wrapper with a rock hard pack, dry satin feel, minimal veins, tight invisible seams and a peppery barnyard aroma. First light reveals an almost unsmokeably tight draw with minimal smoke showing a mild bodied flavor of dank earth and white pepper on a short finish. The first third opens the draw somewhat allowing mild-medium bodied flavors of a white pepper and oily slightly sweet earth to roll in. The finish is growing longer dominated by the pepper zing. The 1/2 way point comes at 25 minutes dropping the ash in 1″ chunks. The only change is the generic sweetness going to a cinnamon and allspice blend, mixing well with the earth and pepper through the finish. Ending at 50 minutes the last third just went to a ash earth and quite unpleasant aftertaste.
