The cigar is looking very good; the wrapper is pale but looks flawless. The cigar is firm between the fingers, just a slight give. But it is silky smooth to the touch.
Before lighting up
The wrapper smells of wood, cedar like, and tobacco.
The cigar cuts nicely and easily, the pre light draw is giving some earth aromas and some tobacco on the lips. The draw is good all cigar long, perhaps a bit on the open side. Once lit, there are mild flavors of nuts with a woody aftertaste. The cigar burns cool, each draw creating plenty of smoke. The burn line is clean and even, the ash is of gray color and holds on for about an inch long.
The first third of the cigar is mild in strength and flavors. The dominants flavors are of cedar, tobacco, and leather flavors. There are also some floral aromas, spices, some sweetness and hints of coffee. The cigar burns well, the smoke is cool and abundant. The ashes hold well.
In the middle third, the flavor profile remains similar to the first third, lots of wood, leather, and the spices (white pepper) are more and more pronounced, especially on the aftertaste. The flavors are slightly stronger than in the first third, but it is overall still in the mild to medium body.
In the final third, the spices fade away a little bit; you are left with mostly wood and some aromatic aftertaste. Overall, the flavors are ramping up just a bit; the cigar is now a medium bodied smoke. It is never too harsh however, it is very smooth, and can be enjoyed until the last half inch.
Smoking time: 40 – 50 Minutes
