The Cigar's Look:
Very rich, oily and dark brown wrapper. The label is one of the cleanest labels I've ever seen.
A hint of faint spice on the lips. Very natural tobacco notes. Cedar.
A small dash of spice followed by cedar. Throughout the first third, the natural tobacco notes were very impressive. I noted the pepper became more faint as the cigar progressed.
The burn line started out a bit wavy. The ash was long and held together nicely.
The spice played a nice game of hide and seek. The cedar became more prevalent throughout the second third. A new creamy and sweetness emerged. Almost like a honey almond note.
The burn line again was just a little wavy but did not affect the cigar’s taste at all. The ash remained long and intact.
The smoke was cloudy and heavy. The retrohale was chewy and sweet. This cigar was becoming a favorite!
No noticeable note changes. Still sweet and chewy. A fantastic sweet and creamy finish!
We love getting our hands on rare cigars. It’s natural taste and notes are exquisite. If you are a fan of a cigar that doesn’t have a lot of note changes, this one is for you!
These are ages 3.5 to 4.5 years which makes them absolutely wonderful smokes.
