Final Score: 8.5

At first light, a nice toasty, nutty flavor. Aroma was sweet, draw very good and the cigar burned evenly. Overall taste was woody, nutty with a little of herbs on the finish. Maintained its flavor to the end at which point the cigar had a deeper body. A very pleasant, high-quality smoke that really delivers on value.

#Nowsmoking: Sobermesa Short Robusto

Impeccably crafted. Wrapper is glossy with a fine, leathery texture. Dense, chewy smoke imparts notes of sweet tobacco, cedar, and spice up front accentuated by hints of black pepper. Perfectly-balanced layers of cedar, dark chocolate, and peppery spice throughout with a long finish. Totally awesome.
