The Rothchild had a light, oily brown wrapper that was smooth to the touch and evenly colored. It had some tooth along with a light aromatic smell of earth and spice. The pre-light smell was also quite rich.
First quarter – you will find a very smooth and effortless draw that allows plenty of smoke through to your palate. It delivers full flavored characters right at the start.
Second quarter – it is unquestionably alluring and consistent with plenty richness.
Third quarter – there is a good amount of cedar along with some creamy texture that grows in strength. Nice spices developed through the nose and there was some great texture on the palate.
Fourth quarter – the Rothchild really picks up into full flavors that lasts through to the end.
The Nat Sherman 1920 Selection Rothchild has excellent overall construction with an even and slow burn. It produces plenty of dense smoke with great aroma and it leaves a tight gray ash of earthy, rich tobacco character. Overall, it is an extremely well made and complex cigar that delivered good flavor and a nice balance.
