I have had this cigar for a few months now and it’s just amazing what a little time does to a cigar. With time this cigar actually changed a lot. It went from an extremely oily, chocolate dominate cigar with a little spice, to a cigar that had little chocolate and a lot of spice. It was also an extremely dry smoke, almost like a 100 Anos La Aurora.
1st half- Now the first half of this cigar I got a pretty large amount of spice straight off the bat. This stayed predominate throughout the cigar and didn’t go away at all. About an inch into the cigar I got a slight hint of citrus which was an odd paring I felt but it actually went well with all the spice.
2nd half- Now the second half the spice stayed the same. I think I would have enjoyed this cigar more if I had been drinking coffee because the spice along with the coffee would just have been great. But aside from the spice I got a very pleasant sweetness again along with a very creamy rich smoke.
All and all I did like this cigar, I am not a big fan of the Z series but this was a very good cigar. For $10 I would buy it again. The wrapper and construction was very good and I didn’t have any complaints with this one. keep ‘em smoking god bless and see you all in two weeks.
