Where it’s at: Some cigars taste as good as they look, and this one is gorgeous. Evenly packed with a flawless, silky blonde wrapper and a Maduro cap. Pre-light is salty with some leather, as initial puffs reveal salted caramel. Some white pepper weaves into the mix of sweet spice, oak, and cafecito. Good volume of smoke. Flavors are consistent throughout. Retrohale is creamy with a hint of caramel. Well-balanced and smooth, smooth, smooth. This cigar hit on all counts making it one of the best “Connecticut” cigars I’ve smoked all year.

#Nowsmoking: Huntsman By Plasencia Toro

Paired with: Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel Select Whiskey…Well-crafted. Leathery pre-light. Smoke is mellow to start. A pronounced note of chocolate sets the tone. Well-balanced flavors transition to an earthy, spicy, toasty mix with an underlying ribbon of chocolate. Whiskey reveals a nice subtle sweetness. Spice is more vivid in the last act. Full-flavored.
