Cigars for Warriors The Operator by Philips & King

This cigar is a Nicaraguan puro with a medium Colorado shade wrapper. It looks very well-constructed with no obvious veins. There are light earthy aromas from the wrapper and foot. The cold draw is perfect with a light sweetness.

Initial flavors are earth and leather with a hint of pepper on the back end. The ash is light grey and looks solid. The burn is even.

In the first third the smoke is medium bodied with some oak notes joining the flavor profile. The retohale has a good amount of white pepper. The ash dropped at about one inch in. The burn remains even.

During the second third the flavor profile remains steady. The ash has begun to flake a bit and the burn is just a bit uneven but begins to self correct.

Approaching the final inch the flavor profile remains consistent with a nice complexity. The ash is cracking at intervals and needs to be tapped fairly often. The burn has returned to mostly even.

Overall a very pleasant cigar. It also has a very nice price point, in the $4 range. A bit of creaminess joins the flavor profile late. The late retohale has gone smooth with almost no pepper remaining. A very nice complexity with decent construction; the cigar does burn fairly quickly. 8.9/10, Joe Bob says check it out.
