This is a nice looking cigar with a very smooth medium brown wrapper. It has very light aromas of earthiness. The cold draw is perfect. Today’s beverage is a Yuengling Black and Tan.
The initial flavors are medium and smooth with deep earthy notes. The retohale has light to medium white pepper notes. The ash is mottled grey and looks less than solid. The burn is very even.
In the first third the flavor profile remains earthy with some light pepper notes. The pepper in the retohale remains smooth. The ash is falling off easily and I have to be vigilant to not get it in my lap. The burn remains even.
During the second third the profile remains steady. The retohale also remains steady. This is a very medium bodied cigar. The ash continues to fall but the burn remains even.
Approaching the final inch a light tanginess develops at the base of the flavor profile, which otherwise remains steady. The retohale remains smooth and medium. The ash fell on my shirt, but fortunately didn’t leave a hole. The burn remains even.
Overall a good medium bodied smoke. The complexity is good with a couple of slight transitions, but the construction is a little off; not enough filler to keep a solid ash, although the burn remains even.
8.7/10, Joe Bob says check it out.
