Unlit the cigar tasted a bit woody/leathery with a slight bitterness to it and the draw was a little bit hard.
In the first third of it the draw got better and the flavor was earthy, woody with some walnut and espresso. The strength was not yet fully developed. In the 2/3 of the cigar it got a bit stronger, but not too strong. I could taste some bitterness with stronger woody notes again now and a bit of leather and nuts were in there as well. The final third didn´t get any stronger and had some sweetness in it that reminded me of almonds as well as some earthy notes and a bit of a toasty taste.
At the very end of the cigar it got a bit stronger once more and had a very toasty taste now. It was very well smokable so far back, that I burned my fingers and lips every time I took a puff and had no harshness at all.
Really a great little smoke in my opinion.
