Before lighting up
The wrapper and foot both display wonderful sweet caramel, cedar and earthy aromas. After slicing the cap, the pre-light draw proves to be surprisingly powerful with notes of sweet spices, cedar, oak and barnyard.
Even burn with a good draw.
The first third greets you with lots of sweet spice flavors, some woody notes (of oak) and deep moist soil aroma. There is also interesting tones of roasted nuts though lighter than in the draw, exotic fruits, and intense vanilla and sweet black cherry taste. The cigar produces a rich and creamy smoke and the ash holds firmly on the cigar. The cigar is robust and releases rich flavors. By the end of the first third, nice spicy taste and leathery notes reach your palate.
The second third reveals a stronger profile of the cigar; the vanilla slowly fades away, and gives space to flavors of almond taste coffee, and strong roasted nuts aromas. The spicy taste is even more present in this third. The smoke released by the cigar is similar as in the first third, with the addition of lots of sweet vanilla taste and leathery notes. The burn is still very good and the ash holds on the cigar for a longtime and doesn’t fall before reaching a good inch in length.
In the final third, the cigar profile has strengthened again; its flavors are of medium to strong. The flavors that dominate still are coffee, deep earthy notes, and strong exotic spices. Although the taste profile is very well balance, the cigar is pretty strong when reaching the nub. The smoke now has some flavors of almond and leather again.
In summary, you will find it full of complexity and strength on the finish.
Smoking time: 60 – 75 Minutes
