La Galera 1936 BP Pegador

The smoke texture had rather fluffy, malty feeling throughout and was rather enjoyable. The middle third was where the flavor balance really found its stride and peak. The nuance flavors were a bit understated and struggled to balance from time to time, but they were still noticeable. A decent draw and solid construction made for a carefree experience. I like the idea of this one with an iced coffee or an old school espresso in the midday.
