•Attila the Hun – A classic 6 x 60
Ecuadorian Habano leaf wrapper
aged Dominican long filler
price:9;00 $

PRE LIGHT; The habano wrapper is  rustic and lightly splotchy but has an oily sheen.(never judge a book by the cover right?) this boutique blend is well packed and firm along the lenght.I decided to use a shuriken cutter to light this thick ring gauge cigar.(more on the cutter later).

FRIST THIRD; after ignition of the foot I was greeted with a blast of red pepper  and cedar. the light and draw was easy.There were notes of smoked almonds that was pervasive but over shadowed by the red pepper . While the flavor was full at this point the bodie was still medium.

SECOND THIRD; The red pepper tapered off and was now medium in flavor on my palette. with notes  sweet cedar ramping up.the ash was a bit flakey and grey/white in color,however the ash held prety firm. The draw was very good and the smoke while full was otherwise unremarkble.

LAST THIRD; The flavor profile remained that of red  pepper flake and sweet cedar . The bodie stayed medium and the ash flaked off at the halfway point. I had no problems with burn or draw. some times the burn on a 6×60 can be troublesome,but this vitola was well constructed and  I enjoyed a full hour of this blend.

THE FINISH; I’m not a huge fan of the 6×60 size.However the atilla the hun was a well constructed and flavorful cigar. I was gifted this cigar by a fellow lawdog along with a sampler of their full line. I had been un awear of this  line of cigars and I thank and applaud Chris for his gift and his choice of cigars. It’s seldom that you will see me say “you need to smoke this”. Well I am. Not only this size but all of the line is superb! these are in my book a real sleeper brand and blends. the web site is here  I can’t say wich size and blend I like more. go get a full sampler and enjoy the “candy store” of flavors. The shuriken cutter IMO is a must have for anything over a 52 ring gauge.I just can’t get the right smoking profile with a punch or cutter on these large ring gauges. My only complaint is after 7 months one of six blades fell out. But at under 15$ for it I can live with that. ALL THE BEST-SMOKINJOE
