Cigars Smoked 3
PRE LIGHT; this vitola had a rugged and toothy appearence.It was vieny and was firmly packed w an oily sheen to it.
THE WHOLE SHABANG: Normaly I try to break up anything at toro lenght or better into thirds,but this one was the same flavor profile through out. upon the first ignition of the foot I expierenced notes of esspresso and coccoa.The draw was frim and the smoke plumes came easy.The ash bieng a frim,banded and grey/white.The flavors began to setle down about an inch into this. the taste of black strap mollassas permeated through out the rest of this smoke.About half way through I decided to give it a retrohale. The notes of cinimon and pepper dominated.This cigar was a pleasant smoke,medium in bodie and flavor; enjoyable.
THE WRAPP UP: I was reminded while smoking this stick that I have done a number of botique brands and the nuances of these blends lend themselves to extended reviews.This cigar is like a good many cigars produced by the big rollers(pun intended).It was straight forward and a pleasure to smoke. I was impressed with the pele de oro choice for a wrapper.I would recomend trying this blend.Its just a pleasant smoke.-all the best-smokinjoe
