After Toast:

First third – ​Initial notes of charred oak and vanilla. Woody flavors mixed with natural tobacco and a hint of tea leaves. Burn is pristine. Ash is white and holding strong.

Second Third – ​ ​​The cedar and earthy notes take the stage here with some woody undertones. Burn remained pristine. Ash fell off around a little over the 2-inch mark.

Final Third – ​ ​I experienced no real change into the finish. Straight cedar wood, earth and vanilla. Burn remained pristine.

Conundrum White Blend – The oak in the wine enhances the woody flavors of the cigar bringing the vanilla to the forefront.
