You will start to notice I don’t smoke many Cuban cigars; unfortunately most seem to disappoint me. Will this be the Cuban stick that re-sparks my interest?
First thing you will notice is the incredibly sweet cocoa scent, vanilla sweet describes it best. Pack is even with no soft spots and a nicely finished flat cap.
Lighting up is easy, and produces decent smoke laced with cookie sweet cedar and floral tones. The finish is incredibly short which is surprising for such a flavorsome stick.
From the second third the flavours settle to just above medium, with a slight tang remaining for the finish which still remains short.
Slowly this cigar became more and more sour due to becoming plugged up, nothing a quick poker couldn’t fix returning to the pleasant tastes of sweet floral cedar.
Overall this cigar was enjoyable: good flavours but a traditional cuban in my opinion, having the same flavour from start to end and more often than not plugging up.
Still worth a try.
