This has become my new favorite cigar. Perfect draw, perfect burn. Lots of pepper and wood throughout. Medium to full.I stocked up on 3 boxes of these because I think they ll age amazing and become a classic.
I?m a fan of all 3 creators of this cigar . The draw was perfect , the construction and burn line was spot on and the cigar transitioned in all 3 phases .medium full but never overpowering
Strong yet smooth, and incredibly complex,with wonderfully unique flavors of teak wood, bamboo, fragipani and fresh sunbaked earth in the first inch or so.Second quarter brings a hearty tobacco circus of pink peppercorn, chocolate and cedar flavors.. Quickly develops in to a bready, ultra complex, heavy bodied smoke after the first natural ash drops.Remains overwhelmingly bready and spicy for a bit until the fragipani returns with some banana and sweet, tart and bright plum skin flavors.Final third opens with some raw hazelnut flavors and the tangy raw tobacco taste as if walking through a drying barn.As you near the nub, all flavors mend together to a sweet, rich, creamy, chocolately, nutty and almost fruity blend that can be compared to a chocolate frosted lemon cake.. wrapped in a dark tobacco leaf of course.Great burn, draw, construction and overall, a 90-95 in my book. A stand out and perhaps best in class imo. Highly recommended.
Great smile, consistent draw. nice smoke. up front toasty notes. medium to full body extremely pleasant smoke.
This size doesn t come close to the short Churchill or toro on flavor!
