The construction on display displays quite-nicely exhibiting tight nigh invisible seams and well-affixed cap/shoulder assemblage. Nary tooth to be-seen. Quite veiny, but 'tis a leaf, gentlepersons, and none are egregious harbingers of errant burnings. A tick lumpy. Draws smooth and even with perhaps just a whisper of hesitance on its immediate on-set.
Burns straight 'nuff sans Bic-flick re-direct, but shy of perfect and ain't you all. I mean we. Its pace is quite slow, but even and not tedious. Simply a cool char. Burnt-offerings don't quite cling to an inch at a time of medium-grey dime-stackings. A moderate smoke out-put leaves in its wake a pleasantly mellow sweet earth room-note with some slight malty-fusty complexities.
Those whispered complexities are on the draw, too -- not via transitions, but a plethora or myriad of nuances -- whichever is greater. Primary notes are a hazelnut blonde latte with yellow-spiced cream. Secondary notes ride close-behind and offer dandelion tea with orange-blossom honey stirred-in. Suede. Soft-woods and pine nut cookies. White chocolate is hither and thither as is a caramel vibe. The under-belly is a seeping down-ward of suede into a honey-malt laden bright earth.
Those high-falutin tasting notes which some may call silly and rightly so, are delivered in the advertised mellow-manner, lettuce say mild-medium. The body with its cream and schviting suede goes all the way up to a rich medium which builds to moderate-plus length'd legs. Strength is mild as mild can-be. Well-balanced all-'round and very thoughtfully-so. A kind bit of white pepper can be glimpsed through the schnoz.
