Ran across this one in my box while I was looking for something to smoke today. The thing that caught my attention is that it had been clipped at some point. No idea why or when I would have clipped a cigar without smoking it, but there it was.
Also no idea exactly how old this cigar is. There were signs of mishandling at some point because there were cracks in the wrapper.
The cigar smelled very good and had an almost perfect draw.
Smooth flavors and plentiful smoke were the first things I noticed. There were some bittersweet undertones, but mainly a medium bodied flavor of toasted tobacco. It burned somewhat unevenly, but nothing major and self corrected by the time I finished.
The mottled ash was not flaky, but not extremely firm, also not a problem as it did not drop on me while I was smoking.
This was overall a very nice cigar with solid tobacco flavors and that “little something” that you get from a rosado wrapper.
3.5/5, Joe Bob says check it out (if by some chance you can find one)
