This is a very attractive cigar with a medium brown, smooth wrapper. The aromas from the foot are almost seafood tinged. The cold draw is perfect. Today’s beverage is a 903 Sherman Bock.
The initial flavors of this medium to full bodied cigar are tobacco and gingerbread. The ash is mottled grey and the burn is even.
In the first third the smoke is thick and pleasant. Whatever notes I got from the foot are not in the flavors. The profile is toasted gingerbread and well- aged tobacco. The ash is still solid and the burn remains even.
During the second third the ash drops off in a solid chunk. The retohale has developed a light white pepper note. The flavor profile is losing the gingerbread to an overall sweetness.
Like most Bock beers the flavors are not affecting the flavor of the smoke. It remains medium bodied and very pleasant. The burn remains even. Some cracks are developing in the ash, so I will have to watch it to avoid ashing in my lap.
Approaching the final inch the flavor profile remains steady. The ash remains fairly solid but drops at intervals. The burn remains even.
This is a very good smoke. The gingerbread notes come and go. 9.2/10, Joe Bob says check it out.
