The Charlemagne Natural is a full-bodied, spicy cigar. Lots of mouth filling texture and flavor and a great finish. Even, slow burn and a long ash. Take your time savoring each draw. This is one of my favorites.
Having been a wavell smoker for many years I was excited to try the Charlemagne but to my dismay I found that there is no comparison with it s shorter cousin. While the wavell with it s consistent over all quality of construction, flavor and aroma has never disappointed me the Charlemagne was hard to keep lit, had an uneven burn during the entire smoke and also delivered a bitter taste during the last third. It s not just the Charlemagne though as I ve tried several of the La Gloria line including the Gilded Age , the serie R and others and none of them are as good to me as the plain ol La Gloria Cubana natural wavell,... still the best cigar that they make IMO.
