NOTES:
Boldly dense yet refined sip of a fresh earthen core with distinct criollo 'baccy sweetness. Slurps to the tune(s?) of chocolate & red-spiced cedar. Caramel. Velvety smooth body & softly-sweet lengthy savory vegetal (fungal?) tobaccoy again on finish. Clean. Noses malty-some. 

A very calm but not sedate cup. Balanced verily & almost as so complex. Excellent nuances of clean/clear delineation. Accessible due to its easiness of delivery but there's plenty there for the more astute to ponder/taste. Both more-ish & light snack-ish. Both plain & fancy. Complete.

FINAL GRADE: A
A 90-100 B 80-89 C 70-79 D 60-69 F 0-59
