REVIEW NOTES

With an excellent look and perfect construction, this cigar was exactly what I was looking for. It opened up with a nice cayenne pepper 🌶 experience. It wasn't a pepper blast, the pepper heat had a progressive build up instead. Once the cayenne reached its peak it morphs into a really good cinnamon and cloves experience with a sweetness levels equal to those spices, that lasted for the entity of the first third. In the second third flavors were completely different, a sweet and oily cream drove this third. The smoke up to this point has been great while it does have a light feel to it, it's volume was full and smooth. The aroma of the cigar was amazing, soft and delicate. In the final third it shifted to a smooth cedar with a hint of leather. This was a great full bodied experience while staying mild+ strength. I do have to say, they usually have a bit of caramel in there too, which I couldn't find in this particular cigar.
