Heavy spice and pepper at first buy then a mellow coffee and earthy flavor still a full flavored smoke in my opinion great cigar all around would recommend.
I just finished my first Shadow King. Classic AJ Fernandez traits. Heavy spice and pepper on the light, then calming into smooth, distinct flavor profiles. Wood, earth, leather and pepper are on the draw, with the leather and pepper on the finish. The appearance is smooth and silky with almost indistinguishable seams. Medium brown wrapper with a bit of oily sheen. Feel is velvety smooth with no toothy texture. The flavor profiles chance up with each Third. Construction on this stick was flawless, with the burn was even through the whole stick. This is a definite buy again for me. I highly recommend this cigar.
