IPCPR Arandoza Blue

I checked the internet to read more about this 7 1/2 inch stick and their website has little to no info on sizes or blends. I assume this is the Blue Label because the foot end label said blue but looks different than any pictures I have seen.

The stick is medium brown minimal veins and no soft spots.
The cold draw yields a taste of tobacco and leather and seems to be not too tight or loose


First third.. I get a pepper zing on the back end with hints of leather and nuts. The burn is straight as an arrow and the ash is white and tight. I am getting ample and thick smoke. The head has split a bit and doesn't affect the smoke experience.

Halfway..Still getting that pepper bite, with hints of leather and nuts. I rate this so far at med to full but not too powerful. The burn is a little crooked now but the ash is still tight and holding on. The split in the head has not worsened.
The smoke volume has increased and I tapped the ash after the halfway point as a precaution.

Final third..Pepper has subsided, getting some wood still and earthiness with the smoke lingering in my mouth. The burn is ok and needed a touchup but nothing major. The flavors are enjoyable and not overly complex...
Prelight 9, Light 9, Construction 8, Flavor 9, Power 7. A solid 8.4 and well enjoyed
