Prelight:  A perfect tan wrapper with a nice dusting of plume.  No veins or blemishes at all.  There was a floral aroma with a bit of barnyard.  Prelight flavor was dominataed by mild tobacco flavors. 1/3:  The first third started off with dry hay flavors accompanied by creamy and earthy undertones.  It was mild-bodied with a short finish, and the ash was firm and medium gray.

2/3:  The dry hay flavor evolved into a pleasant grassiness, and a saltiness joined the earthy undertone.  Though still mild in body, the flavors became a bit fuller.

3/3:  The salty/earthy flavor intensified a bit, and came to the forefront of the flavor profile.  The grassiness bittered just a little bit and became a little spicy – especially at the tip of my tongue.

Overall:  A nice mild Beli with a nice evolution of flavors.  I would certainly be able to enjoy this at any time of the day – mild enough for breakfast time, and at the same time satisfying enough for a nightcap.
