This cigar had a nice, oily brown wrapper with a rich pre-light smell at the foot. The draw was very smooth and delivered a rich taste to my palate. The uniqueness in the blending of leaves gives it a silky smooth aroma and an earthy taste with cocoa notes. You will also catch a hint of spice that blend very nicely with the overall taste of the cigar.
The CyB is nicely balanced, medium body cigar that is rich in both flavors and complexity. It is an effortless smoke – very enjoyable and one that I would strongly recommend.
