Sensei’s Sensational Sarsaparilla

SCountry of Origin: Nicaragua

Size/Shape: 5½” x 52 Belicoso

Strength: Full

Wrapper: Mexican San Andres

Went to Hemingway’s our last night in New Orleans; the Cigar Dojo (http://cigardojo.com/) guys were there handing out samples. This was pointed out as the best cigar in the pack. It is a Cigar Dojo exclusive.

Well constructed, cut easily with the Palio. Nice easy pre-light draw with hints of leather and spices. Leather and spices were dominant after easy light.

Burned a bit hot at first, had to slow down, which wasn’t easy considering the complexity of flavors and dominance of good old-fashioned peppery strength. Backing down a bit was all it took to cool down the burn.

A muted sweetness developed about half-way through the cigar, and it finished strong with the sweet-spiciness and rich leathery base. I wish it had lasted longer.

Overall, one of the better full-strength so far, 4/5, Joe Bob says, “Check it out.”
