Where it’s at: A leathery pre-light sets-up a creamy-nutty start with a hint of sweet spice. Notes of cedar, cashew and nutmeg lead-off as peppery spice is revealed in the retrohale. The last third reveals more peppery spice and charred earth; but overall, this Robusto rounds-out nicely for a satisfying, well-balanced smoke.
