This cigar is a TPE21 release. The wrapper is smooth medium dark brown. The cold draw is perfect. Today’s beverage is a cold Topo Chico.
The initial flavors are medium bodied and very complex. There is an earthy base with coffee and toasty tobacco notes. The retohale is very smooth. The ash is dark and solid. The burn is even.
In the first third the flavor profile remains solid with hints of cinnamon on the tongue. The retohale remains smooth. The ash fell in the ashtray at about one inch. The burn remains even.
During the second third the flavor profile is steady. The retohale remains smooth with light pepper notes developing. The ash is becoming a bit flaky and the burn is now diagonal.
Approaching the final inch the flavor profile remains steady. The retohale remains smooth with light pepper notes. After a quick touch up the burn returns to even and the ash looks more solid. The finish is pleasantly spicy.
Overall a very good medium bodied cigar with nice complexity and good construction. 9.2/10, Joe Bob says check it out.
