This is a beast of a cigar with a decent ring size. Note to self, need to get a ring gauge.
The pack of this cigar is tight, it has very little resistance. What is surprising though is the cold draw is incredibly light with no discernible flavour.
The first 15 minutes was a little tricky, the draw was so light that it was a bit of a struggle to keep going.
Thankfully I didn’t have to wait long for the draw to tighten, and the flavours to show hard and fast!
I found musty bread, white pepper, cashews, cedar and leather for the first third.
The second third is out with the old and in with the new with flavours which have a hint of floral, fresh grass, aged tobacco and black pepper.
Finishing off this experience will find you sour fruit, salt and lavender.
The diversity of flavours found are astounding and apart from the start, construction was solid with ash only falling once. Unfortunately it just didn’t do it for me, maybe it was too diverse and a little confusing? Still, worth the experience.
