Wrapper: Nicaraguan Jalapa Sun Grown
This cigar is box pressed with I pig tail cap that is more of a point than a pig tail. The wrapper is smooth with no protruding veins. The shade of the wrapper really compliments itself with the double bands and has an oily nice feel to it. The wrapper has a sweet earthy aroma to it and I get the same thing off the cold draw.
After the initial blast of pepper I am picking up chocolate along with a nut flavor towards the end of the second inch. The ash is a little flakey around the edges but nothing too bad. The burn is staying even and towards the end nut flavor picks up a little.
After reaching the half-way point I am picking up notes of wood to go along with the wood and nuts. The flakiness I was having in the beginning stopped and the ash seems to be holding on for quite a while. There is tons of smoke coming off this cigar and it’s both thick and creamy seeming to just sit in front of your face.
All the flavors really came together nicely towards the final couple inches. The chocolate, wood and nuts blended well together with a sweet floral undertone on the aftertaste. Construction was good and needed no touch ups or relights.
I’ve been reading a lot about this cigar for the last few weeks and I had high expectations. Let me just say they were all met. The flavors were rich and blended well together. The people over at Casa Magna have been coming out with some great lower priced sticks for the past couple years and this one is no exception. Go out there and grab some they are well worth it in my opinion but then again what the hell do I know.
Keep em burnin’
