This cigar is part of the Turrent’s country styles, which includes Honduran, Dominican, and Cuban, which is not a Cuban cigar but is still very good. The capa on the Nicaragua is a bit rustic and the foot has earthy aromas. The cold draw is perfect and has light sweet notes. Tonight’s beverage is a 2 oz. pour of Baluarte Reposado Tequila.
The initial flavors are medium bodied with earthy sweetness. The retohale is smooth with light pepper notes. The ash is mottled grey and fairly solid at this point, and the burn is mostly even. The tequila is light and smooth; a solid pairing.
In the first third the flavor profile shifts to a more medium to full bodied smoke. The sweetness subsides and a light coffee note is detected. The ash remains fairly solid and the burn remains steady.
During the second third the light sweetness returns to the flavor profile. The ash began to tilt, so I tapped it into the ashtray. The burn remains steady.
Approaching the final inch the flavor profile remains slightly sweet with light coffee notes and earthiness. The retohale remains smooth with light pepper notes. The burn has become somewhat diagonal, and the ash remains fairly solid.
Overall a very pleasant cigar. Very good construction and a very nice complexity. 9.1/10, Joe Bob says check it out.
