First 3rd:
Pre-draw aroma: Dry hey off the foot and nothing off the wrapper.

Pre-light draw: Tea leaves and dry cooking spices.

I got a constant mild jalapeno heat initially then it transitioned to some light pepper and tobacco core.


Second 3rd:
Transitioned to a constant char and leathery flavor, not bitter. This flavor profile is not really in my wheelhouse.


Final 3rd:


Aesthetic:


Construction:
I had to touch this one up several times as it kept burning uneven.
