The Blaze Report
This cigar has a deep brown, oily and toothy wrapper. There’s some sweet notes of hay and cedar on the pre-light nose. Once lit it carried over to the taste with an additional chocolaty flavor. Some nice white peppery spice now in the nose and aroma while lighting which also became a constant trait through-out the duration of the cigar. The Espada Oscuro stated with a body that continually built in strength as the cigar was smoked. The burn was even with a great overall construction. A great after supper cigar I paired with Blade and Bow Bourbon Whiskey and was amazing.
