A slow smoker, I got about 45 min. out of it. Beautiful construction. Barber pole double wrap required a couple small touch-ups to even out the line; burning two different wrappers simultaneously so I suspect that would be somewhat normal? Firmly packed, nice draw with good smoke output. Medium body, medium strength with a short finish. Not my cuppa in the flavor dept. but pleasant overall. Flavor nuance s are quite subjective so I won t travel that road.
