This 6×50 stick features a dark brown buttery soft wrapper with a firm even pack, minimal veins, tight invisible seams, large double cap and faint wood aroma.  First light reveals a good draw with decent medium bodied smoke showing a nice sweet wood an the draw followed by a short general tobacco finish.  The first third develops the sweetness to a fleeting caramel joined by a deep earth on the draw.  The finish is long with a substantial pepper bite that holds to the next draw.  Burn is perfect with a razor sharp line, tight ash and great draw.  Hitting the 1/2 way point at 45 minutes the burn is very slow and perfect, keeping the same flavor profile.  Ending at 1:45  the last third just brought in a bit of strength to the mix matching the body at medium.
