Rolled a tick unevenly, but seams are tight. Pack softens in the three/three, draw hampers-some; mainly even-pulling till then. Big plumes a' smoke spike occasionally to bigger plumes, calming quickly twixt pulls. Smoke and shaft heat-up at band-point. The dark ash ain't a grower, is prone to splitting, and comes outta a sometimes jagged-line. Pacing is even 'nuff.
Citrus-forward mulling spice. Black pepper. Soft woods. Ebbing-and-flowing cocoa, less-frequently milk chocolate. Cedar comes sharply-in at the half with cardboard lilt. Leather and oils. Hay with grassy accompaniment under-belly. Zesty sweet-spice dials-back in second woodsy/earthen half. Short sweet/spicy-cum-earthen finish.
