Before lighting up
Strong tobacco smell comes out from the wrapper. There are also spicy and grassy notes. Typical Hoyo series.
Once cut, the draw is good, while slightly on the tight side, and gives some aromas of wood, coffee with some notes of sweetness and cinnamon. Upon the lightening of the cigar, there is only powerful tobacco, with few notes of pepper. The burn line is a bit wavy at beginning, but does not affect the quality of the smoke; it does not require further attention. The ash is solid so far.
The first third of the cigar is dominated by a strong flavor of tobacco, alongside with some grassy notes, like flavors of tea. The smoking experience is pretty smooth despite the medium strength of flavors; it is also sweet thanks to sweet cinnamon, milk coffee, toasty aromas.
In the middle third, the main tobacco aromas are still dominant, however the flavors of nuts, of milk chocolate are more noticeable. There are also notes of bitterness and saltiness. The whole flavors work well together while the body rises to a medium/medium to full profile. The draw is still very good and the ash is building up solidly at the foot.
The final third has typical flavor profile of the Le Hoyo series, mostly wood, nuts, toasted tobacco and some spices. There is still some sweetness, some milk chocolate. It is still very smooth, feels like eating a chocolate candy. This cigar is enjoyable until the very end, a true finger burner.
In summary, it is a very short smoke that packs all the great Cuban flavors.
