Apparently the name means ‘Firework’ so let’s see if this cigar goes off with a bang!
The toothy wrapper just glistens of oil, a little bumpy with some sharp veins throughout.
The pack is a little on the firm side; the cold draw has light resistance and hints of cedar and leather.
The first third of this cigar was quite sour and vegetal; this flavour came and went while cedar and leather remained as the base.
An addition of white pepper appears for the second third accompanied by an ever so slight tease of cocoa; cedar and leather still remain but now the sour vegetal taste has moved to the finish.
The final third unleashes the ‘firework’ with pepper spice becoming all encompassing. This cigar is definitely full flavour and strength at this point, so you better be sitting down!
Overall the construction and smoke output cannot be flawed, but the limited diversity and quality of flavours just wasn’t for me.
