The pre-light draw has a medium-firm resistance, showing slightly spicy notes of mineral, cedar, and citrus. It is sharp and very intense, having a wasabi or horseradish-like zing, which creeps its way down the back of the throat and warms the chest.
The cigar maintains the medium-firm draw resistance experienced in the pre-light portion—it is slightly too tight but certainly manageable. This produces medium to medium-light smoke output, offering a dry mouthfeel. The burn line is wavy and amounts to a touchup at about a half-inch in. This marks a turning point in the profile, as the black pepper onslaught pulls back, allowing for a more subdued and complex experience.
This opens up a brighter profile, showing cedar, citrus, and musk cologne this combo is noticeably amplified with a sip of bourbon , as well as a long and satisfying dark chocolate and vanilla finish. At this point the flavors seem to slowly pull back, being replaced by a growing strength that warms the chest. This marks a steady progression or degression towards darkness—with dark chocolate, anise, mineral, dark toast, and occasionally harsh notes from overheating.
The red pepper notes remained in the background while the leathery component diminished. Meanwhile, there still were some chocolate notes present. The resulting nub was slightly soft to the touch, but cool in temperature. The cigar maintained a straight burn path from start to finish.
There was a slight amount of jaggedness on the burn line, but this was more cosmetic than problematic and was easily remedied with a touch-up. The resulting ash was tight and firm with a nearly white color. The burn rate and burn temperature were both at ideal levels.
The draw had an agreeable touch of resistance to it. Overall, this was a low maintenance cigar to derive flavor from. In terms of strength versus body, I definitely found the body had the edge.
