Review Notes: A big surprise in a small package. This short box-pressed stick sported a smooth dark cocoa wrapper with miniscule veins. Solid in the hand, excellent construction without soft spots. Easy light. Good draw. Precise razor sharp burn without the need for relights or corrections. Dense white-gray ash. Started with pepper, spice, and wood. The first third had heavy notes of wood/cedar, burnt cocoa, dark chocolate, and game. The middle third brought a slight menthol flavor. The last third was a more intense version of the first third. All in all, this 35 minute, full-bodied, fairly complex smoke was surprisingly tasty given its short stature. It produced thick, chewy smoke, and was very enjoyable. It is still fairly "raw", I would say, though. Perhaps it would benefit from a few more months or so in the humi to round out the edges. Will be a classic.
