SUMMATION
Sweetly and lively acidic. Only a very bissell salty. Quite sour and almost as bitter. Mainly sweet with some surprise bite. Softly rich and subtley balanced. Fairly complex and nuanced, but reliant in those respects upon its flavored nature. Some fun transitions, and a fun all-'round and somehow old-fashioned stogie.

Coffee drink, blonde caramel latte. Pepper, white. Wasabi vibe. Chocolate, white. Cream, cream as far as the eye can see and cow can milk. Floral, white. Sugar. Earth/dirt, sweet and creamy w/ hay attachment. Wood, soft. Pine stuffs. Grains, light -- sifted, even. Alfalfa. Nougat. Salt, Himalayan hint. Macadamia nuts. Lemonhead candy. 

Combustion features an occasionally lilted and oft aerated ash. Burnt offerings are pretty as far as DR guts go -- crystals and silver bits; clings on to an inch. Burn-line is even 'nuff tho ne'er perfected. Draw is a -tight tense tension, mayhaps which causes the top-leaf to split at 'round the band. Seams aren't tight, but they is even and doth hold. Pack holds its medium+ density. At the end of 2/3, draw loosens noticeably. Decent and then a tick more smoke-out-put giving the aroma of that coffee drink. Smoke heats up a tick at band.
SMOKE TIME
70mins.
