Before the Smoke

Beautiful toothy Connecticut wrapper with a very mild peppery-like taste to the lips.

Cold Draw

The cold draw drew a nutty and woody taste to the pallet.

First Third

Right off the bat, the first notes were nutty, woody, & slight creamy. It lit very nicely and evenly. There was a very slight hint of peppery after taste but not very powerful–which I personally tend to love!

Second Third

The nuttiness lingered. The draw stayed consistent and notes of vanilla and a sweet nutmeg crept in the pallet.

Final Third

The final third was exhilarating. The creamy vanilla notes made their mark. The draw stayed smooth and creamy making the retrohale extremely pleasing. I got to a point toward the nub where I wish I had a nub holder so I could finish the nub. There aren’t many cigars I’ve smoked to which I can say that about them. The Connecticut wrapper stayed intact and had no visible tears, rips, or bumps.

Final Thoughts

This was an amazing smoke! It stayed consistent throughout. It had a nice, smooth, and flavorful draw with an extremely solid sweet vanilla finish.

I noticed early on there was a lack of smoke from the cigar when I was holding it. Some cigars seem to emit a ton of smoke when lit and in your hand. This one, however, was put together very nicely! I believe this is a testament to how well this stick was packed and rolled and the caliber of the Breña filler and Connecticut wrapper.

A big thank you to Marc Ripoll of KOLUMBUS Cigars for the sticks.
