On the light the shaggy foot gives off straight black pepper and red pepper on the tongue and on the back of the throat. The retro is a black pepper. Medium to light draw. Into the 1st 3rd the ashe is holding strong. Lots of thick smoke. Notes of salt, pepper, black coffee, burnt campfire marshmallow with a medium to long finish. The retro is strong black pepper, cinnamon, and nuts. Strength is medium to full with lots of flavor.
Getting into the 2nd 3rd the ash is flaky but still holding. The burn is getting a little crazy and lopsided. I'm going to wait to see if it corrects.. Halfway in to the 3rd the burn gets worse so a correction is needed. Smoke is full with flavors of coffee, dried fruit, deep tobacco flavors, and a black pepper. Strength is full and the finish is long with a spicy black pepper and dark chocolate in the background.
Into the final 3rd the flavors are bold and spicy. Black pepper, red pepper, cinnamon, lots of spice. There's a slight sweetness off the wrapper and the strength is jumped to a full plus. The retro's red pepper and cinnamon. Burn has needed another correction. Finishing this cigar I get lots of spice and heat. A cinnamon tingle on the tongue and cheeks. All of the sweetness has fallen away and the retro is all spice.
