The draw is firm. Decent air flow with a touch too much resistance. Chocolate cookies, honey, ginger snaps, leather and earth come from the cold draw.
Light cinnamon, ginger snaps, leather, earth, and touches of citrus to start. Strength is at a medium-bodied level. Beautiful combination with the right strength level. Divine start.
The draw is good and the smoke production is excellent. The burn is razor sharp and the ash is a ‘dirty’ white.
The retrohale is lush and vibrant. Delicate layers of cinnamon, light oak, ginger snaps, and citrus move easily through the nasal passages.
