If you have the pleasure of being a Privada member you will know that the tasting notes can be really handy with helping you define flavours. But it can be equally frustrating when you can’t taste what’s listed! To each their own.
In this instance liquorice is right on the money. A flavour that I find pretty odd for a cigar especially when mixed with salt and fresh herbs. A strange but interesting start.
Each draw is incredibly dry and powdery. So much so I need a sip of my drink after each draw.
Salt, pepper and a hint of fresh herbs are the constant throughout. Liquorice flavours fade quickly halfway through.
Smoke output and construction cannot be faulted with this cigar but the odd flavours mixed with the dry and powdery smoke just wasn’t for me.
