This 5×50 Soft Box Pressed stick features a dark Chocolate firmly packed wrapper with a slightly toothy oily Velvet texture, minimal veins, tight invisible seams, large double cap and faint Cocoa and Pepper aroma.
First light reveals a perfect draw with mild-medium bodied flavours of a creamy texture with a sweet cream flavour followed by a hint of Cedar, with Coffee and Cocoa through the finish. The first third comes up to a medium body with the Cream dialled down, the body flavours going to a smooth Milk Chocolate and the Pepper coming up to match on the long finish. Burn is slow and the line nearly perfect. The ½ way point comes at just over 30 minutes shifting to a deep Coffee dominating both the draw and finish carrying the rest of the flavours on the background with perfect construction.
