The oily wrapper leaf made torching and toasting this stick a bit of a challenge, but once lit, Betty came out of the gate with crisp even burn and solid white ash.
The first third starts off with black pepper, nutmeg, and plenty of sugary sweetness courtesy of the sweetened cap. Less than inch later the sweetness from the wrapper subsides a bit and I start detecting that hints of wood and leather have joined the party. These four core flavors took me all the way through the first third of what I’d call a complex medium to full-bodied smoke that’s leaning more towards the medium side.
During the second third, Fat Bottom Betty delivers an entirely new experience as flavors of maple, cinnamon, and dark roast coffee take center stage with some lingering black pepper on the retro-hale. While taking a break to enjoy the luring toasty tobacco aroma, I noticed that the sweetened cap has left a rather unpleasant aftertaste on my tongue. It’s definitely not a deal-breaker though, because Fat Betty has developed into a unique and enjoyable smoke that simply screams Drew Estate!
