Started off medium-to-full and with notes of black pepper, then shortly after opened up to red pepper. Became medium-full after the midpoint, then the pepper tamed down and it became more earthy on the last third, while the draw, which had been outstanding to this point, became tighter. The red pepper than made another showing at the nub, and the nicotine also went up a notch. Burned for about an hour and a half. Nicotine strength was a medium overall. Based on the rather inconsistent burn I m guessing these could use more time in the humidor. 90 points.
