The wrapper on this cigar was dark and oily, and the pre-light smell was subtle but quite rich at the same time. There was a slight resistance on the draw but the construction was nearly flawless. Some spices developed through the nose, along with a smooth creamy texture. La Duena delivered thick clouds of spicy smoke to my palate. The burn was slow and even, and the taste was hearty with a long, full-flavored finish. Overall, La Duena is a very enjoyable smoke for any time of the day and one that we would strongly recommend.
