The Blaze Report
The cigar has a sweet pre-light smell. It offered spice in the flavor with some pepper, cocoa powder and more spice. Deep can complex with earthiness and flavors in the smoke. Peppery spices lingered through the nose and on the back end of every puff with a slightly sweet taste through to the finish. Outstanding construction overall. Absolutely effortless to enjoy.
