Second Third – The cedar really picks up moving the nutty note to the background. At the half way point, a smooth vanilla component comes into play with a touch of coffee. Burn remained wavy.

Final Third – Earthy and nutty notes along with spice and cedar return to the forefront to come full circle with this smoke. Burn remained wavy.
