This small robusto is a powerhouse a spices, but very smooth. The ideal daytime smoke for a maduro man such as myself.
I ve been through more than a box now and this has become a go-to smoke. They re rolled with a coarse leaf...I like the somewhat rustic look...but they re well done, consistent in color, have no notable blemishes, and feel good in the hand. One or two in the box had a tough draw and they don t hold their ash very well. I ve ashed myself with as little as an inch. They have good flavor from the get-go but can take that first inch to really hit their stride. Unlit, they have a distinct chocolate/coffee aroma to my nose that s more subdued in the smoke. Additional notes of loam or ripe hay, wood, rich berry, and faint pie spice.
