This cigar has a very smooth medium brown wrapper. There are light aromas from the foot. The cold draw is perfect. Tonight’s beverage is an Oak Highlands Brewery Vanilla Porter.
The initial flavors are medium bodied and nutty. The retohale has a strong black pepper note. The ash is light grey and the burn is even.
In the first third the ash is very solid and the burn remains even. The flavor profile remains medium bodied and nutty but not sweet. The smoke is very thick. The ale is adding a touch of vanilla in the background, but is still a good pairing.
During the second third the ash dropped off on the floor, but in a solid chunk. The flavor profile remains steady. The pepper notes in the retohale have lessened and it is very smooth now. The burn remains even.
Approaching the final inch the flavor profile remains a basic Cameroon, medium bodied and nutty. Complex but steady. The construction is excellent, with a very even burn and a mostly solid ash.
Overall a very good smoke. 8.9/10, Joe Bob says check it out.
