The cigar has a medium dark corojo wrapper. Aromas from the foot are very coffee and tobacco. The bunch is firm and the cold draw is perfect. Tonight’s beverage is a Santa Fe Brewing Java Stout.

From the initial puff the cigar has solid coffee notes. There is also a nicely balanced pepper note in the retrohale. The burn is perfect.
The first third is a very solid medium to full bodied cigar with some creamy notes joining the flavors. The smoke is very smooth and plentiful and the burn remains perfect.
I applaud Mitchell Orchant for having such a flavorful cigar developed for the English market where mild to medium bodied cigars are the norm. During the second third cedar joins the flavor profile and it is absolutely delicious. The construction is immaculate as well ,burning evenly.
The Java Stout is a perfect pairing as would be a good cup of coffee. Approaching the final inch the complexity of flavors remains excellent, very balanced and not focused on any dominant flavor. This cigar easily earns 96, and I am happy to say that I have another to smoke later.
