REVIEW NOTES

Cigar Observations: This cigar has a dark brown wrapper, slight oily and slightly toothy with a couple small veins. The construction is ok with a visible seam and a cap that was half coming off so I just pulled the cap off the rest of the way. The body is slightly box-pressed, gives slightly when gently squeezed with no hard or soft spots. The band is plain and boring. Pre-light: The foot has the aroma of rich earth dark chocolate and spice. I clipped the head with my Xikar Xi cutter. The pre-light draw is a little tight. I toasted the foot with my Xikar Genesis torch. First Half: The flavor starts out strong with a bite of pepper spice that is common with Nicaraguan tobacco. It is strong, deep and flavorful. There is an earthiness to it with toasted wood and dark roasted nuts. In the background I am getting a dark chocolate mixed with dark roasted coffee beans. The retrohale has strong spice and if you can get past the pepper and retrohale a decent amount you will start to get cedar. The finish is not too long and has the flavor of cedar. The body is medium and the flavor is full. The draw is perfect with just a little bit of resistance and the burn is even. The ash is white, compact and holds on for an inch. Second Half: During the second half the flavor is charred cedar wood, dark roasted coffee beans and pepper spice. The retrohale has strong pepper spice and cedar. The draw and burn are still going perfect. Closing: This cigar is rich, complex and smooth. The pepper spice is strong but at no point is it harsh. I would say that this cigar is a great example of the wonderful flavors of Nicaraguan tobacco. For the price, this stick is well worth it and I already want to buy a box so I can start aging them.
