This cigar has a medium brown wrapper that is oily with a couple medium and several small veins. The seam is invisible and very smooth. The cap is neat. The body is well pact and gives slightly when gently squeezed. The band is simple with nice colors.
The foot has the aroma of chocolate, hay-spice and a background of sweet earth. I clipped the head with my Palio cutter. The draw is a little bit tight with the flavor of spice. I toasted the foot with my Blazer micro torch.
The flavor starts with smokey cedar. After the first 1/2-inch the grassiness begins with toasted nuts. There is an earth spice that reminds me of Mexican hot chocolate. The retrohale is smooth with strong cedar, light spice and a slight sweetness. The finish is long with spice and cedar. The flavor is full with the body and strength at medium. The draw has slight resistance and the burn is a bit wavy. The ash is light gray and compact.
During the second half the spice increases and decreases several times before you reach the end. A smoky oak appears once you hit the last third. The last quarter to the end has strong spice.
This is not your average Joya De Nicaragua cigar. If you are looking for a power bomb then look at some of their other lines. This cigar is a true flavor bomb with a lot of complex flavors and plenty of depth. The flavors change from the first puff all the way to the last puff. I would highly recommend this cigar to the new and experienced smoker.
