NOTES:
Smoothly tangy. Dull knife under a pillow cushion texture. Bitter orange. Peaty. White pepper & leather. Undertones to them overtones are pinewood, quite vegetal pale nuttiness. Milk chocolate, something like bright hops. Some grassiness. Coffee w/ cream & sugar comes in at the half and steers the remaining experience from its upper middlings locale.

Underbelly is chicken coop and dirt w/ mineral tendencies. The retro-hale smell/taste is reminiscent of someone smoking a joint in the house next door. I think they're snacking on SweeTarts. Overall quite a tangy vegetal experience braced by white pepper of which two deliveries are made; one up-front and another near mid-point. There's something of a burnt quality to many notes, particularly up-top.

Burns on an even line. The pacing seems a bit erratic, speeding up then slowing. Ash grows well & draw is smooth and even. Moderate smoke out-put sans much of a room-note. Sans too, of any hard/soft spots in packing.

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