Construction.
k a p l o W i t z
Verily a nice pre-light presentation. Invisible seams and quite minimal veins. Well affixed cap. An non-egregious lump or three. Softens some whenst lit, but within a medium+ pinch'd density. No soft/hard spots. Medium+ tension to smooth and even draw with a tick up in resistance at the end of pull. Nub heats half a tick as band doth approach, but holds fast its shoulder and seams.

Combustion.
k a p l o W i t z
Smoke sits heavily 'bout me with a distinct greenish tint to it. Burn-line needs no re-touchin' aid, but doth curve a tick in the 2/3, fixes on its own accord. Burnt offerings are densely oiled tight ladder-rungs of a heather grey with slight darker marblings. Burns in a slight conical manner. Shaft remains quite cool all the way up to and including its char -- till the aforementioned nub.

Flavors.
k a p l o w I t z
Onset is latte, heavy on the milk -- dairy, yes, w/maybe a bit being of the almond varietal. Though that's not really milk, as nuts ain't got nipples. if you like this sorta thing, welcome to kaplowitz.xyz, yer home on the www for this sorta thing. Almond separates, gets a pecan addition, pastes. Very earthy in a sunny sweet dirt manner, richly. Nice bit a' leather, fustily done and an aspect of the earth notes. Pepper white/black 80/20 on draw and 60/40 on retro-hale. Hardwoods, seasoned and with a subtle nutmeg lead. Fustiness bleeds outta leathers to whisper throughout the background with a bit more tanginess there. A grapefruit rind. Milk chocolate gains traction at the first inch and expands in the toasting cream throughout. A sweet alfalfa laces under-belly throughout, alongside some joining toasted grains past the half.

Transitions come via smoothly added complexities, not drastic shifts -- par for the course in a verily and superbly balanced delivery. Even-keeled and vastly consistent sans boredom.

Body.
k a p l o W i t z
Even and rather thick oily-nigh greasy/creamy smoke-hole satiation, tho not heavily per se. Bittersweet natural tobacco earthy finish featuring robust then complexly delicate legs. Ends clean as a whistle. Moisture-level is an occasionally erring toward arid mediumness.

Strength.
k a p l o W i t z
Excellently enforced back-bone. neat-o nic-zetz in the 3/3. Subtlety did, but did it be.

Get it HERE at Cigars City! Such a deal, epis!
