REVIEW NOTES

I opened this stick with a single punch. The pre-light draw was firm but not hard with cocoa and cappuccino flavors. The aroma reminded me of tobacco, wood, and stable (like horses...it was a good aroma). The 1st third had some pepper, coffee, and slight bitter chocolate. The burn line was sharp, decent smoke output, and the ash fell towards the end. The flavors of the 2nd third was more of coffee and toasted bread. Maintained good smoke output and ash. The draw tightened a bit but the looks of the wrapper just went from good to great as it warmed up. The 3rd third was an extension of the second. Overall, the look and feel of this stick was really nice. The wrapper felt like soft leather (especially when warmed from smoking). It looked like a classic box pressed cigar that just felt good to hold and smoke. The construction was really good. Consistent flavors and profile. This is one of the few cigars I will buy a box of when I find them on sale (I'm not cheap, just thrifty). This box of 10 was worth it.
