The cigar is looking somewhat rough, the wrapper has some bumps, but the construction is great nevertheless. The wrapper is perfect except for few small veins, the color is light brown, a thin sheen of oil on it and the cap is very well applied. The quality of rolling is great, the cigar feels good between the fingers and the cigar is slight box pressed.
Before lighting up
The wrapper smells of hay with some hints of cocoa, typical of so many Habanos.
Once cut, the draw is great. It lights up very easily, and instantly some spices coats the tongue, but not strong spice, not the one that tingles the lips, there is also some sweet notes. The burn is awesome from the get-go and creates a very solid ash that seems to be holding up. A nice smoke is rising from the foot.
The first third of the cigar is medium to full body. The tobacco is the dominant flavor, combined with some spices on the finish. There is also a constant earthy tone, with some leather and wood. Overall, the draw and the burn line are amazing and the ash is dark and solid.
In the middle third, the cigar is starting to be creamier, with some creamy coffee notes that now offset the spiciness, which is fading in the background. There are still lots of wood and tobacco but we can also detect hints of cacao and hay. The finish is marked with strong leather and tobacco. Overall, the middle of the cigar is still medium to full body, the draw remains amazing, and the band comes off effortless.
In the final third, the flavor profile of the cigar remains similar; the dominant flavors are of wood, tobacco, creamy espresso and bitter leather. The spices come back on the draw, as they were in the beginning of the cigar. It is a great third, very enjoyable. The cigar strength remains unchanged at medium to full body.
In summary, this is a short smoke that maybe doesn’t look the nicest, but it sure does smoke well. A great little stogie!
