"Medium body and a medium-to-full flavor profile"
Showed a very promising whiff of earth and barnyard from the wrapper as well as nicely cured tobacco on the cold draw.
Upon lighting, this was amazingly smooth, exhibiting notes of nuts, leather, and cocoa. Draw was just a tad too tight through a V-cut.
About half an inch in dark coffee notes started creeping in and taking over.
It then became a little too smooth on the second third, with underwhelming, nondescript flavors.
The bitter coffee notes reemerged on the last third, and then the stick got smooth again at the nub.
Burned cool till the very end, for about 90 minutes.
