After Toast:

First third – ​​Flavors of caramel coffee and spice kick off this third. A solid medium body start to this cigar. Burn is sharp. Ash is light gray.

Second Third – ​Flavors of caramel still carry over but a heavier wood component comes into play. Almost an oak sensation on the back of your palate. Moving to a fuller bodied smoke. Burn goes wavy and required a touch up. Ash fell off at the halfway point of the cigar.

Final Third – The spice takes the stage with coffee notes moving to the background. Finishes as fuller bodied cigar. Burn remained slightly wavy.
