First 3rd:
Pre-light aroma: Chocolate, caramel, cappuccino.

Pre-light draw: Chocolate and a bit of hot pepper in the background.

Nice full smoke and great draw. I can feel the deep flavors and nicotine in the background, it is not too back but let's you know it's there. Toward the end of the 1st 3rd I started to get a bit heady so I had a piece of chocolate. Also got salty and leathery notes.


Second 3rd:
Transitioned to a creaminess and the salt/leather receded into the background. Another transition into dark coffee.


Final 3rd:
The flavors persisted with a nice creaminess.


Aesthetic:
Beautiful looking stick with a nice band.


Construction:
Unfortunately it went out on me toward the end of the final 3rd. Likely my fault since I took too long between draws filming my end of year clips.
