Orange cream soda. White peppercorn, smoothly into more cream. Vanilla beans. Excellent. Undertones: lightly toasted cedar & pine, butterscotch, cashews, allspice. Pale rum drenched bright earthen underbelly with light clay & sweet hay nuances.
Complex not transitional. A calm & classic profile, mellow but not boring. Loaded top-to-bottom w/ delineated notes, blended nuances, and quite lovely accompaniments.
Burns on a straight line off moderate & even pacing. Ash builds to an inch, inch & 1/2. big smoke out-put both actively and passively, culminating is a pale sweet-spice room-note. Hints of blonde roasted coffee beans there. No hard/soft spots and tight seams on-down. Smoke does heat a tick in the 3/3.
