Review Notes: The pre-light aroma is wonderful and I'm hoping for the same type flavors in the smoke. Lights a little crooked but burns straight. Strength dominates until the taste comes through at 1/2" or so. The initial flavor is woody, I'm guessing oak. A sweetness joins in shortly thereafter. Take the full minute between puffs and savor the flavor. There's a nice spice in the nostril and on the tongue during the finish. The ash is a light silver/gray and would probably hold for 2+ inches but I'm inside and not taking any chances so at 1 1/2" I tapped it off. The wrapper is coarse and veiny but still appealing while the construction is top notch. Though not too complex it is consistently rich in taste. The body becomes more medium at half way and the spice wanes a little. The sweetness fades and some pepper comes into play at the 2/3 mark. A very solid performer that changes it's stripes as you go which makes interesting as well. The last couple of inches will test your metal if you decide to go there.
