Where it’s at: A solid smoke with excellent attributes. Easy draw. Cedary pre-light. Mix of cedar and spice to start. Burns clean exposing a firm ash. A tangy citrus note unites with cedar, roasted coffee, and crushed cashew. Cigar exhibits superb balance as semi-sweet spice and more earth ensue in latter stages. Nice!

#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.
