Where it’s at: Well-built with an attractive, silky, blonde wrapper. Creamy and mellow to start with an understated sweetness and some peppery hangtime. Smoke is thick and chewy with well-rounded, velvety flavors of oak, cashew, peppery spice, and a subtle note of caramel. Nice “first cigar of the day.”
