Cold Draw – Very sweet cedar. Caught me off guard.

After Toast:

First third – ​A great amount of flavor out of the gate. Some initial notes of earth followed by semi creamy vanilla spice that sits on your palate before turning into a slight pepper. The interesting part is the finish. A citrusy cedar is what sticks on your tongue until the next puff. Solid medium body. Burn is pristine. Ash is light gray and fell at the inch mark.

Second Third – ​​Flavors turn earthy with a light anise and mineral notes. Burn remained perfect.​ ​​

Final Third – ​Flavors remain earthy with spice and vanilla. Burn was perfect.
