Sancho Panza Gran Quixote

Sancho Panza Gran Quixote: the cold draw reveals hints of cedar wood. The opening is particularly light, also due to the format, and it confirms the wooden notes to the palate.

The first third continues on cedar wood, with a touch of white pepper. The base is pleasantly acidic and the strength is medium light (2/5).

In the central part, spices are less present, replaced by a mineral note aroma. Also the wood leaves room for a light earthy note. A toasted sensation in the aftertaste is also perceptible. Strength grows slightly, but remains below medium (2.5/5).

There are no big changes in the last part of the smoke. Earth is the main flavor, enriched by toasted notes and a vegetable aroma that slowly makes its way in the background. Strength is now medium (3/5).

Overall, the Sancho Panza Gran Quixote develops a nice evolution and shows a decent flavor profile. However, it lacks in intensity, that is very contained for the whole smoke.
