This cigar gets a lot of mixed reviews. Well nothing better than finding out for yourself.
The dark brown wrapper and strong scent of rich tobacco gives me a good idea of what’s in store.
First of all I found flavours of black tea and cedar, immediately followed by rich tobacco. These flavours aren’t unexpected at all for a cigar aged this long. (6+ Years)
From the second third flavours of dried musty fruit and charred wood are next in line. Black tea continues to the be the theme here edging towards bitter but thankfully never reaching.
As we continue this cigar becomes darker, richer and smokier. Pepper starts to show just briefly on the finish.
This stick isn’t bad at all. Resistance and burn is spot on, but I do see why it gets mixed reviews.
