I can see this as an enjoyable morning smoke with coffee, or as an early afternoon smoke. No huge wows, but very consistent and enjoyable. This is a smoke I would add to my morning rotation.

Musty tobacco, slight sweetness
Musty, sweet tobacco, dried fruit
Sweet tobacco, apricot, dried fruit, with a perfect draw
On the light up I get tobacco, earth, and cedar. The retrohale brings a slight white pepper. Into the first 3rd, lots of floral notes and Cedar up front and a dry salt and pepper on the finish. White pepper and cedar on the retro. At the end of the 3rd, still getting lots of floral notes. Cedar and a citrus zest with salty finish. Burn is wavy.
Into the second 3rd, the ash is still holding strong. The burn is wavy but still manageable. Still getting notes of Cedar and floral. The salt note has gone and been replaced with a sweet almond and a slight vanilla on the finish. Lots of thick smoke, and the retro is floral and citrus mixed with a slight white pepper. The finish is medium long.
Into the final 3rd the biggest improvement has been the burn, it’s perfect now. The ash is holding an inch or 2 at a time. Most of the flavors now have blended together. The most prominent is a cedar and vanilla note, and cedar on the retro. No spices, but a slight tart note on the finish.
