First light is a blast of dark chocolate, dark-roasted coffee beans, cocoa, and brown sugar.Toasty leather notes complimented by white pepper, and buttercream follow. Hints of clove and honey. Retrohale adds a warming black pepper burn.
As it progresses, the creaminess begins to grow. Spanish cedar, amber ale, and raw sugar emerge. Vanilla bean lingers on the finish.
Halfway, the blend "rounds out" and really comes into its own! Rich flavors of molasses, red oak wood, and toasted macadamia nuts emerge. Nougat, and milk chocolate add more sweetness to the blend, balanced perfectly by hints of red pepper and all-spice. The finish is big and stays on the palate for a long time. It's like the flavors just don't want to let go. You'll be smacking your lips after every puff!
Last third, the richness of the flavors deepens even more! Each puff is an explosion of complexity. Dark chocolate brownies, earth, butter, and tanned leather come to the fore. The woodsy notes tick up a notch. More vanilla bean and baking spices appear. The construction and draw are perfect. The burn line is straight and true! It's an absolutely unbelievable smoke!
