Tasting Notes: First Third- The opening act is a ballet of subtleties – musty cedar dances with a curious note of burning paper, gently fading into the background as a light mushroom essence steps onto the stage.  The retrohale deepens this experience, layering fuller mushroom mustiness atop the cedar undercurrent.  This segment, mild in strength, leaves you contemplating its delicate complexities.

Second Third- As we journey into the middle section, the musty mushroom subtly asserts dominance over the toasted cedar, weaving through the smoke with a quiet confidence.  The retrohale blurs the lines between these flavors, creating a muddled, yet intriguing melody.  Closing out this third, the mushroom recedes, allowing the toasted cedar to share the spotlight equally with the evolving narrative of the smoke.

Final Third- Entering the finale, the cedar intensifies, now heavily toasted and slightly ahead of the lingering mustiness.  A poignant moment occurs three quarters in, as a light bitterness joins the symphony, adding a new layer to the complexity.  The retrohale mirrors this shift with toasted cedar and a whisper of mustiness.  The cigar concludes with a robust chorus of heavily toasted, lightly bitter cedar, and a backdrop of subtle mustiness.  The strength nudges just below medium, perfectly rounding out this sensory expedition.

Pairing Suggestions: This cigar pairs beautifully with a crisp, oaky Chardonnay or a light amber ale, each complementing the cedar and honey notes respectively.  For food, consider something earthy like a mushroom risotto or a simple almond biscotti to echo th enutty musty characteristics of the cigar.
