First 3rd:
Pre-light aroma of cappuccino, chocolate, and a sweetness.

Pre-light draw of dark sweet chocolate.

Smooth, creamy chocolate flavors with beautiful smoke.


Second 3rd:
Transitioned away from the coffee notes to nice roasted almonds. Still creamy and smooth.


Final 3rd:
Not too bad but draw issues and re-touches brought a lot of char.


Aesthetic:


Construction:
From middle of the last 3rd the draw was not that great and I had to touch it up.
