Very smooth dark wrapper with a light ring at the foot. The bunch is firm and the draw is perfect.
In the first third the flavor profile is a mixture of earthy spices with a deep background of dark fruit flavors. The retrohale is very smooth. The burn is perfect.
During the second third the spices pick up to more peppery and the fruit flavors diminish almost completely. Some of the deep fruit flavors are now in the retrohale, which has also developed a hint of pepper. The burn remains perfect.
Approaching the final inch the strength builds to full bodied. The flavor profile remains excellent. The construction of the cigar is immaculate.
