Draw showed just a little resistance through a V-cut, and it was excellent following a guillotine cut. Starts off woody, then it turns floral by the end of the first third, after which the salt and pepper of the Nicaraguan tobacco kicks in. It then turns creamy around the midpoint, and more full on the last third.
Lasted for about 90 minutes.
My wife says they re smelly, but I counter by telling her the smoke is rather smooth: I think these would benefit from a little time in a humidor [stick was just a little tight too].
88-89 points [Excellent]
