Cohiba Lonsdale Grand Cigar

Score: 8.5

Flavor: 8
Final Score: 8.5

First light: A nice warm, woody mellow flavor. Nice firm, light grey ash. Near the end of the 1st third a rich, woody, earthy taste began to present itself. Incredibly smooth and consistent in flavor throughout, yet considerably stronger by the last inch.
