Starts harsh finishes well
Not my favorite of the Don Tomas line. Crooked burn was irretrievable but it does have a good progression of flavors. Earthy start with hint of sweetness. Gets more spicy and leathery as it goes with underlying sweet and caramel all the way through. Finishes with a spicy white pepper nuance.
Good burn,nice ash. Was expecting more from such a highly rated cigar. Flavor was just missing the mark,overall just a tad bland. Maybe some time in the humidor will help, if it does I will write more.
Out of the same box I can have a great smoke, but for others the wrapper will undo, or the smoke will become foul after mid-smoke.
I am a novice and I'm tasting several brands and cigar taste. I tried one Don Tomas Maduro Rothschild and found it simply perfect for my taste. It burns slow and uniform. The taste is rounded, smooth but full of flavors. It is absolutely one of my favorite with the Italian handmade Arabesque.
I've smoked about a dozen of the Rothschild maduro Don Tomas clasico cigars and was amazed at the consistency and great quality of each cigar for the price. The solid white ash is reminds me of the best Cubans I've enjoyed. Maybe not the most robust taste, but far from bland in a more moderate range of flavor. An excellent 45-60 minutes stogie that I will always keep in my humidor.
I can't say I enjoyed this one at all. It's a very nice looking cigar and the draw is decent, but the good aspects pretty much end there. I hardly noticed any flavour to this cigar besides a burnt flavour.I won't be buying these anymore.
