This gorgeous, box-pressed pyramid is woody and floral on the palate with touches of nuts. The finish has a chalky and flinty character.

A box-pressed torpedo with a nearly veinless wrapper. It's rich and toasty with spicy notes that build to woody flavors and a touch of dried cherry on the finish.
