    With all the wood burnt up, a nice range of grassy flavors reveals itself, with a hint of spices and herbs here and there.

    Near the end of the first third, the cigar starts to flex its muscles with a bite of pepper and some leathery flavors.

    Too late - half-way through, the ash drops in my lap. Still a nice, firm cone though.

    The draw is a bit tight but the burn is very straight and there is plenty of smoke to go around.

    The sweetness combines beautifully with some nutty flavors, resulting in a nice chocolate-like experience.
