There is a gorgeous slightly oily wrapper with an even brown color. The pre-light smell was clean with some lightly sweet with some wood notes. It was silky smooth to the touch with no soft spots.
There was some resistance on the draw once lit. However, within five minutes, the draw became effortless and allowed big clouds of dense, full flavored smoke through to the palate. The cigar began to produce plenty of smoke at the foot and even more to the palate. There were spices present through the nose and a light texture on the palate.
Plenty of interesting full flavored spices developed along with an underlying medium character and sweetness. The aroma of sweet earth and a hint of chocolate and nuttiness started to develop. Spices through the nose lingered with rich tobacco notes.
The aroma had a dominating sweet tone with a rich characteristic and deep flavors with nuts and oak. Rich earthy tones then appeared along with some cedar and cocoa notes on the palate and in the flavor. A dense and creamy texture developed as noticeably full characters grew. Some peppery spices continued to develop with deep and rich earthy tobacco notes. The body then moved into a medium to full strength. The aroma and flavor continued to develop and intensify, delivering a very rich and full flavor.
This a well-made and fairly complex cigar that develops all the way down to the nub. It has a very flavorful, long and spicy finish. While full bodied, it is effortless to enjoy and could easily be smoked beyond the nub. It offers hints of creaminess, cedar, and nuts – all played an important role and left a lasting impression. Packed with deep and rich flavors with a long a finish. A good flavor experience that didn’t overwhelm the palate.
