Caldwell Long Live The King Lock Stock: unlit, notes of wood and red fruit are outlined. The opening brings vegetal notes to the palate.
The first third releases white pepper, wood and herbs. Chili spices appear slowly. Towards the end of the first third, vegetal notes can be perceived as well. Strength is medium (3/5).
The second third continues without any major changes: vegetal notes, wood and spices are confirmed. Even the strength remains constant (3/5).
The last third alternates vegetal notes and earth, followed by a gentle pepperiness in the background. The base becomes slightly bitter. Strength stays on the medium level (3/5).
Overall, the Caldwell Long Live The King Lock Stock releases a balanced and round smoke. The evolution is rather limited and there is a change only in the last third. Good flavor intensity.
