After Toast:

First third – ​ ​The first third was a very simple blend of toasted nuts, milk chocolate and black pepper. Exactly in that order on the palate the entirety of the third. The burn was slightly wavy. The ash light gray and flaky.

Second Third – ​ ​The second third brings on a slight transition with the base chocolate notes along with a subtle spice. Slight hints of lime/citrus also come through in spurts. Burn remains slightly wavy.

Final Third – ​ ​Spice picks up along with the steady milk chocolate flavor begin this third. The fig flavor comes out to finish this off, which was basically its way of saying thank you please come again. Burn remained wavy but did not need any touch ups.

Johnny Walker Double Black

Overall Experience:

​I am a huge fan of the original Camacho Ecuador and the BXP rendition with the PA broadleaf adjustment just added to my love of this blend since PA is my home state. I thought the experience was incredibly consistent and not overwhelming. Two to three flavors at a time with one constant being the chocolate makes it a nice smoke to share with anyone.
