This cigar has an utra-smooth wrapper. There are light vanilla notes in the foot. The cold draw is perfect. Cut with a Colibri Deep V.
Initially the cigar is very smooth but with light white pepper notes both on the palate and in the retrohale, creating a good complexity from the start. As the flavors settle in the pepper subsides and a creamy vanilla note comes to the fore. The burn is excellent.
In the first third the pepper stays far in the background, almost teasingly. For a lighter cigar, this one has plenty of body, as well as pleasingly thick and aromatic smoke. The burn remains perfect.
During the second third the flavor profile builds a bit. It suggests that this cigar would pair well with a good cognac. Anyone suggesting that this cigar too light is smoking it too fast. The burn remains perfect.
This is a great light to medium bodied cigar. Definitely the lightest in the Dunbarton line-up. But it is still a very satisfying smoke; perfect for those who like to start their day on the lighter side. The construction is immaculate and the complexity is very interesting. And the finish is very pleasant.
Approaching the final inch, the cigar remains excellent. From construction to flavor profile, I find little to no flaws in this cigar.
