For someone that has never been a fan of CT shade wrapper, I find this blend in CG and Lancero absolutely awesome. Whether you re a regular CT smoker, or someone like me that leans toward full body full flavor, you will find something about the Themis to love. It seems like many companies have felt the need to release a CT shade wrapped cigar recently, and this one is a standout.
Pre-light:Cold draw taste of tobacco and earthiness.First third:Great smoke output, burning nicely. A slight spiciness, nuts, and creamy very smooth. a slight spice on the retro.Next third:Smoke volume and burn still on point. In this size the flavors are more mellow than in the lancero. Coffee is creeping in the mix still nutty and creamy with a very smooth retro.Final third:Sooo smooth all the previous flavors still present and mingling nicely. Spice has picked up a touch in the retro. Smoke and burn both outstanding for the duration.Final thoughts:Yet again another great stick from the great guys at Protocol. Get you some if you can this size only available at Famous Smoke Shop.
