After Toast:

Second Third – The cashew notes really come out here followed by the caramel. Beautiful flavors right here. The light cinnamon note plays in at the halfway point of the smoke. The burn remains sharp.

Final Third – The cashew notes really point the palate here getting salty. The deep caramel note sits on the palate during the finish. The burn remains sharp.

Overall Experience:

Lot of nice flavors happening in this Guardian of the Farm smoke. Personally the cashew and cinnamon spice note set the stage for me immediately then turning into the caramel note, which just made me love it more. Definitely get out and pick this up when you see it. It is an outstanding smoke.
