Where it’s at: A cashew nut cold draw precedes a creamy, toasty, and nutty start. The smoke is very mellow upfront, but this lengthy cigar takes awhile to hit the sweet spot. Once there, the dense, creamy smoke is mostly toasty with a nutty-cedary layer and a pinch of sweet spice. More piquant flavors are revealed in the last act, and the woodiness is more defined. Despite its size, this is a terrific starter cigar. Outdoor conditions may affect burn time, but my Churchill smoked indoors for 2½ hours.
