Halfway through, the profile remains consistent with a touch of saltiness. Towards the end the flavors shift towards a creamy leather.

" -<strong>John A. </strong> (Bostoneo)82.5MediumMedium"Opening the final third, the extreme saltiness and bitter profile tone down and I am left with a creamy, slightly mineral like profile.

The intense salt and mineral notes detected halfway through just became a turn off for me and I really didn’t even want to finish the last inch of it, so it got tossed. Other than that the burn and draw were spot on, but the wrapper also lifted halfway through off the bunch. Not something I’d actively seek out tonsmoke again.

" -<strong>John I. </strong> (John I.)87.5"Very clean aroma. No fermented notes, slightly sweet and a bit floral. " -<strong>John I. </strong> (John I.)92.5MediumMedium"Pre-light there are pronounced notes of gingerbread type baking spices. On lighting the baking spices are present along with a nice bright pepper.
After developing about a half inch of ash, the damned thing drops right in my lap.
Peppery notes continue with some spices apparent on the retrohale. I also pick up some faint wet dog notes occasionally on the finish. Not a great thing, but not enough to really detract from the overall experience. " -<strong>John I. </strong> (John I.)
92.5Medium-StrongMedium"Into the mid portion, the peppery notes continue and develop into a nice rounded oak flavor. Spices are less apparent.
Strength picks up. The draw, which has been a bit snug, becomes more of an issue." -<strong>John I. </strong> (John I.)
92.5Medium-StrongMedium-Full"Potency has definitely picked up into the final third. I've also removed the band and given this cigar a bit of a massage which has helped to open up the draw.
Flavors have deepened, and are now primarily of rich, charred earth and coffee. " -<strong>John I. </strong> (John I.)

" -<strong>John I. </strong> (John I.)92.5"Would have rated the construction considerably higher if not for the draw issues. Overall this was a really nice, dense and heavy cigar. " -<strong>John I. </strong> (John I.)95"What can I say, I love this format. Aside from fairly minor issues with the draw this was a thoroughly enjoyable smoke.
