NOTES:
Cocoa butter, caramel, nougat. Coarse ground white pepper lifts those notes and braces them atop burgeoning & billowy undertones of toasted cream & buttery cedar. Meanderings of pale dried fruits permeate the profile. Light-roasted coffee beans come in at the half to give lush middlings a decent back-bone.

Oh, spices. They present as a nuance of pepper -- white ginger, cinnamon (& sugar). Some vanilla extract. I get a sense of French Toast. Ooh-la-la. Finish is long-legged but a somewhat disappointingly simple sweet cream, leathery oil. Malt. OK... not disappointing. Long-unfurling. Body smooths & moistens after a tick gruff & dry onset.

Combustion & construction, however, each suffer some to the tune of effecting the final grade. Ash aerates & flakes, burn-line blisters. Wants to peter-out @ mid-point. Pack density softens unevenly via progression. Draws a tick hesitant/hollow hither/yon. B I G smoke out-put offers a dense room-note akin to finish. In terms of true nicotine strength, becomes sneaky-strong in 3/3.

FINAL GRADE: B+
A 90-100 B 80-89 C 70-79 D 60-69 F 0-59
