"Sweet, Creamy, and Complex"
The artistry of this cigar is unmistakable from the very start. It s beautifully constructed with a dark, toothy, oily wrapper that entices with an aroma of both coffee and earth. On the cold draw, flavors of sweet tobacco and dried fruit were the most pronounced with a hint of spice. After toasting, the first draw delivers a medium-full profile with a layered taste of cedar, coffee, and black pepper with spice appearing most prominently on the retrohale. Through the first third, notes of sweet coffee and cedar marry together perfectly as the notes of pepper fade into the background of a creamy smoke that leaves me eager for my next draw. By the middle third notes of coffee and cedar continue along with salted caramel. The final third produced some nutty notes as the coffee drifted to the background beneath the pepper, spice, citrus, and wood.
Overall, a TERRIFIC medium-bodied smoke that was sweet, creamy, and complex
