"Certain to become one of your favorite Churchills"
A well made cigar, it opens with nice espresso and earthy notes. The peaked 'cuban' style cap cuts just enough to allow a great draw and for the strong tastes to come through.
The first 'third' of this Churchill has subtle hints of dark chocolate through stronger tastes of espresso and nut.
The second picks up more woody notes, keeping the espresso and chocolate and steps up slightly in intensity.
The last 'third' has more cedar and nut but keeps the espresso, losing the chocolate. The most impressive part about this full-bodied smoke is the consistent draw and burn, allowing a long ash, and an even longer finish.
This is certainly one of my favorite 45 minute to hour-long smokes. ?The price is well worth it, and the time spent, even more so.
