First 3rd:
Pre-light aroma of chocolate and dry hey.

Didn't get much out of the pre-light draw.

It was creamy and buttery with mild nutty and woodsy flavors.


Second 3rd:
The creamy/butteriness persisted with the addition of a light char which complimented the flavors.
Eventually it transitioned to roasted chestnuts which gave it a creamy finish.


Final 3rd:
At the start of the final 3rd the draw started getting tight, likely because i left it sitting a bit too long..
Eventually it started to draw better.
The flavors transitioned to some char, spice, and leather but not off putting.


Aesthetic:
A beautiful looking stick with a nice nice box press.


Construction:
Great construction for most of the way, a bit of tightness near the end but not too bad.
