SUMMATION
Takes a bit of time to add flesh to the skeleton insofar as flavors; starts nigh wispy in a Jazz manner with a great focus on un-played notes. Earth and woods with leathery help via oils fill in the blanks. Nuanced, not too complex. Spicy (black/red peppers) more than sweet (black cherry) and not all-told overly balanced throughout. Retro-hale is sharp and not adding to profile. Burn wobbles and blisters but self-corrects. A spicy medium+ profile with medium strength that spikes then holds. Finish is sweet espresso. Worthy of a try, gentlepersons.
