Where it’s at: Note the braided tobacco leaf band, which is very unique, and which you can smoke through. A tart, pre-light cold draw results in creamy and very dense initial puffs with a peppery finish. The smoke is mostly earthy and woody in the early stages. A more pronounced woodiness with notes of sweet spice and a morsel of espresso follows. Some pepper remains on the cigar’s long finish. Later on, more cedar and sweetness arrive with a lemon zest-like tanginess and more espresso. Take a little extra time between puffs. Pair with coffee or Rum.

I love all 3 of the Amazon basin line-ups. But the original is my favorite.

This is a really good cigar, even if the ring gauge is a bit more than I normally like. This size is for online sales while the 5 X 52, I believe is the size is for B&Ms. Actually prefer the smaller size, but did buy a box of 58 and have enjoyed them thoroughly. Nice article, thanks.
