Wrapper: Natural Habano
Size: 7×54 Perfecto
As the Super Bowl is coming up next week I decided it was time to smoke some of the cigars I won from Mike from over at Stogie Review from last year’s game. These LFD’s are some amazing looking cigars. The wrapper is oily and seamless. The pig tail caps on all five I smoked are flawless. With the length of these perfectos they look like miniature submarines. The smell on the cold cigar is of manure and pepper and after the clipping of cap the flavors on the cold draw is pepper and wood.
After lighting up the thin foot I am hit with a blast of pepper along with coffee and a slight wood in the background. The draw is pretty easy right from the start which I thought was going to be a little tight at the beginning due to the perfecto shape. The ash is a medium grey and holds on for well over an inch.
The pepper has died down as I move into the middle portion of the cigar but as that happens it is replaced with a nut. The nut flavor is a nice compliment to the coffee and wood flavors that are still around. There is plenty of heavy smoke and the oil around the burn is nice.
As the cigar is getting skinny again it is time to ditch it but I’m said to see it go. The flavors were the same up to the end. Burn stayed even and didn’t need any relights or touch ups.
I’m glad that the Steelers lost last year and I won these. They were flavorful and complex. The balance of flavor and power were complimentary and was a nice change of pace. The cigars have a little higher price tag then I’m usually comfortable at around $16 a stick but hey I didn’t pay for them haha.
Keep em burnin’
