Not even sure how long I’ve had this in the humi (probably bought it in Austin last time I was on 6th, which has been several years). Anyway, rustic-looking but heavenly smelling stick that went perfectly with a nice cup of Honduran coffee. Nice clean pre-light draw with cocoa hints.
Initial draw yields ample smoke with a classic maduro profile. Some pepper in the back of the nose adds to the enjoyment.
Strong flavors that you would expect from a double maduro if a bit one dimensional in the first inch or so.
Had to make some burn adjustment and a tear developed in the wrapper. Wrapper problems I will take responsibility for as I don’t always take “pristine” care of some of my one-offs.
Sweetness developing, and the ash is holding rock-solid, so quality bunching/construction. More pepper picks up as the cigar continues.
Wrapper issues aside (like I said, probably my fault), this was a very enjoyable smoke. I give it a solid 4/5. Joe Bob says Check it Out.
