This is a very nice looking robusto with a smooth dark wrapper. There is a light sweetness from the foot. The cold draw is perfect. Today’s beverage is a cold Topo Chico.
The initial flavors are medium bodied and earthy with a plum sweetness. The retohale is smooth with very light white pepper notes. The ash is mottled grey and solid. The burn is even.
In the first third the sweetness fades leaving a rich earthy flavor. The retohale remains smooth with a light increase in pepper notes. The ash is firm and the burn is even.
During the second third the flavor profile picks up a bit of rum in the background. The retohale remains steady. The ash remains solid and the burn remains even.
Approaching the final inch the flavor profile remains steady and smooth. The retohale remains smooth with light pepper notes. The ash remains solid and the burn remains even.
Overall a very good cigar with good complexity and great construction. 9.4/10, Joe Bob says check it out.
