Body: Brisk Iced Tea
Foot: Rich tobacco and sweet tea
Cold Draw: Leather, sweet tea, cedar, and dried fruits
Tasting notes: In the first third of the cigar, I get floral notes and charred cedar with a honey-like sweetness. Creamy smoke envelops the palate while tart dried fruits begin the finish. There is a satisfying umami that shows signs of black pepper and peat-like smokiness. There is a satisfying balance to each puff. Further down I get notes of oak, vanilla, and tangy fruits.
In the second third, I start to receive a warm sensation of baking spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, and old spice. The rich cedar is still there along with creamy puffs of vanilla, charred oak, and what creates both the sensation and faint flavors of a peach pie filling.
In the final third, I get warm apple brandy, white pepper, cedar, slight sesame, sugar, cinnamon, and a beautiful wood that shifts between cedar and oak.
