The Blaze Report
A pre-light nose was light with a moderate amount of sweetness. Some floral floral, cedar-like pre-light taste. Once lit there was a light yet rich aroma with earthy cocoa and peppery spice. Very similar to the aromas of the pre-light. Mild spice in the nose with coffee, cedar with floral edge growing to more earthy as the cigar was smoked. Some mild cocoa-like notes developed in the aroma with luring qualities. Spice picked up a bit and lingered on the palate. It offered a nice spicy flavor profile that was balanced. Outstanding construction overall with lots of flavor and sweetness.
