A rather soft stick sporting a fine-but-toothy, medium-brown wrap, a couple veins & a high sheen of oil. PLA earthy & very barn-y; PLT earth & coffee; PLD airy. Light is easy, draw airy, smoke papery, & burn is even. Earth, wood notes, leather & lots of bl. pepper are the starters &, pretty much, the finishers. Not an exciting cigar, but steady & dependable. The finish on this high-medium-body stick is not too long; a combo of wood & earth, & not harsh. It sticks around just long enough to remind you it's there & to keep you coming back for more. The pepper is milder on the finish. Not bad at all.
