Punishing partner or ethical?

Although partner and I have been playing regularly for over a year, our "system" has a lot of rough spots.  We have agreed on fourth-suit forcing, and that it it usually invitational, but have not refined matters beyond that.

I held J1087x Kxxx 10x AK.  After 1 - 1 -  2 - 2 partner bid 2 after a brief hesitation.  I strongly suspected fewer than  three spades, but was concerned that I may have been the recipient of unauthorized information.  I bid 4, partner had Ax, and we got a bottom.

3NT was an automatic bid, whether partner hesitated or not.
After partner's hesitation, bidding 3NT would be exploiting unauthorized information.
