First 3rd:
A pre-light aroma of dry hey and citrus.
A pre-light of tanginess, citrus, and white spice on the tip of the tongue.
In the first 3rd the citrus continued but transitioned to a deep woodsy flavor with floral notes. It was a mild stick with some substance.


Second 3rd:
Deep woodsy flavors with notes of toasted almonds. Near the end of this 3rd it got creamier.


Final 3rd:
Nice solid smoke, checked a lot of boxes for me and very consistent.


Aesthetic:
Nice looking stick with a decent band.


Construction:
No problems at all.
