Pre Light

The wrapper on this smoke was very oily and had a dark brown shade to it.  The veins were minimal and the cigar felt well packed from head to foot.  Smelling the cold wrapper I got an earthy and sweet aroma.  After snipping the cap and taking a few cold draws I picked up a wood and earthy flavor.

1st Third

There is no hints of pepper on the initial lighting of the cigar which I would expect with a lot of Nicaraguan tobacco in it.  Instead I’m picking up that earthy and woody flavor I was getting on the cold draw.  The burn is a little wavy but not out of control.

2nd Third

There are more sweet tones coming  through in the middle portion of the cigar.  The earth and wood flavors are still there but that sweetness shows up every few puffs.  The burn is still a little wavy and there is a ton of creamy white smoke coming off of every draw.

Final Third

The pepper finally showed itself in the final third. Still haven’t had any construction problems and it’s still smoking like a chimney.   The flavors still seem to be focused on the earth and wood.  I’m getting a slight leather taste every once in a while to go along with that sweetness I started to pick up the 2nd third.

Overall

I haven’t heard of these until they were sent to me and I’m glad they were cause I enjoyed them thoroughly. Flavors were nice and construction good. Don’t just take my word for it go smoke some of these yourself.

Keep em burnin’
