The cold draw brings forth a subtle sweetness, but nothing more. A very nice cedar and hay aroma begins to fill the air during the toasting. On the first draw, a buttery sweet tobacco and graham cracker burst forth. With the figurado shape, there is always an initial blast of flavor in the beginning, where the ring gauge is smaller on the foot. This blast of flavor was simply delicious! I found myself salivating over the thick, creamy smoke and soon wished the entire cigar was a 30 ring gauge.
Into the first third, the cigar quickly mellowed out. With the normal 52 ring gauge, there was no more full-body flavors, settling for a medium body. Butter and sweet toast make up the majority of the profile, along with graham cracker, faint chocolate, black pepper, and cedar and spice on the retro-hale.
