Coming in slightly larger than the ‘Trick’, the ‘Treat’, well, looks a treat!
This cigar lights up easily and tastes of hay and faint cedar. Each draw has mild white pepper lingering for a long finish.
First ash falls at the 20 minute mark and it’s that fine it’s reminiscent of talcum powder.
There is a distinct taste of aged tobacco, refined but with a little pepper bite. I also get flavours of Christmas; welcomed flavours of dried fruits and cinnamon, sweet but not overly so.
The last third brings earth, wood, toast and pepper. I did smoke this cigar right to the nub but the last few minutes became quite bitter.
Overall not a bad cigar. The aged tobacco flavours are marvellous and definitely the star of the show.
