Before the Smoke

The Look: leafy, oily, medium brown maduro wrapper

Cold Draw

hay, earth, and leather

First Third

A little bit of coco or chocolate with a very concentrated earth  and a super light leather note that lingered on the palate. The draw at the very beginning was just a little tight.

During the middle of the first third, the chocolate became much stronger and the cigar really opened up! The draw became very smooth and created a lot of smoke with each puff.

New Note: A new coffee note emerged. Almost like a macchiato taste at this point. It was very pleasing on the palate!

Very easy and smooth draw. The burn line was pristine. Long ash thanks to the long fillers!

Second Third

Oh man! The second third consisted of just the coffee and coco/chocolate notes. The earth note must have gone on vacation.

By this time, the cigars smoke was super cloudy. The burn line was razor sharp. The draw was still super easy and smooth. Again, a very thick and long ash.

Final Third

This is when the cigar really kicked into gear! The final third was absolutely stunning. Everything from the razor sharp burn line, cloudy smoke clouds–they all were fantastic!

The coffee and chocolate was extremely strong!

Halfway through the final third, there was a very different citrus-like note. It was different but almost like a dark chocolate and orange peal chocolate candy bar.

The end of the final third finished with what tasted like cinnamon, chocolate, and chocolate.


Final Thoughts

  • Our final thoughts are simple: Very constant notes, fantastic draw, amazingly razor sharp burn line, fun note changes, and long and sturdy ash!
  • If you are a coffee lover, get yourself some of these cigars! This would pair perfectly with a coffee or chocolate stout beer!
