Our Monday smoke is an oily and marbled dark shade of brown. The wrapper has no major veins and in very beautiful to look at. The cold wrapper has a very sweet barnyard aroma and after I snipped the cap off the head I got the same sweet taste on the cold draw. The draw is perfect not too tight or loose.
As I first light up the cigar I am blasted with a shot of pepper. The pepper quickly subsides and I am greeted with chocolate and earthy flavors that are blending very well with each other. There is not a lot of smoke coming off the cigar but still seems to be burning well.
As I pull past the halfway point of this LFD the earthy flavors have fallen away and are replaced with a rich coffee flavor to go along with the sweet chocolate taste that seems to be the focus of the cigar. The burn has been even and slow which I’m guessing is because of how oily this wrapper is.
The flavors seemed to stay the same down to the end of the smoke. The chocolate and coffee complimented each other very nicely. Ash held on strong and the burn was even.
I’m definitely glad I picked I fiver up of these. Although this cigar wasn’t very complex the flavor profile was nice and at least if it sucked they are nice to look at haha. I would have to say to anyone interested go out there and grab a few.
Keep em burnin’
