Carefully crafted as the international answer to the illustrious Cuban, each stick carries a strong legacy of tobacco from Nicaragua, Brasil, and Peru, all wrapped within the finest Ecuadorian leaf. Born from the fly-by-night travels and increasingly distinguished palate of one man, hand delivered to far-flung lands for the most private clientele, and quickly assuming their place as the top shelf selection in the world’s most exclusive lounges, LH Premium Cigars are a departure from the ordinary, an exploration in flavor and prestige – a selection of unprecedented cigars hand crafted by the world, now brought to you.
A subtle sweetness on the lips followed by cedar and an almost floral undertone.
The first few draws starts off sweet, almost like a caramel sweetness not not intensely sweet. A few additional puffs brought on hints of cedar and almonds.
The cigar had a great burn line which stayed even the entire first third.
As the cigar progressed, the sweetness intensified but did not overpower the cedar and almond notes. Towards the end of the first third, a floral note emerged.
The cedar and sweet caramel notes became a match game and seemed to switch while leaving the floral note in the finish. I found myself puffing too quickly because the flavors were such a great pairing.
Soon came a slight peppery note in during the retro-hale. It was keeping a medium body tone at this point.
The burn line was straight just as it was in the first third.
Such an incredible smoke output for being a robusto!
Honey…… honey came to play! It was such fun combination of honey, cedar, and a sweet caramel and/or almond-like bouquet.
I was highly impressed with the combinations and how they paired so perfectly.
The burn line remained razor sharp and the smoke output was fantastic.
Wow! I was extremely impressed with the construction and overall “performance” of this cigar. The multiple notes paired very well with one another.
The burn line remained even and razor sharp throughout the entire smoke!
If you are seeking a quality cigar with an abundance of flavor and subtle sweetness, this one is definitely for you!
