This is a very good looking cigar with a very smooth wrapper. The aroma from the foot is savory. Pairing with a Willet bourbon.
In the first third the flavor profile is very complex but balanced. The base is Nicaraguan earth with mild spice. The spices are very reminiscent of holiday baking. The ash is very light grey and solid. The burn is very even.
During the second third the flavor profile remains complex and flavorful. A bready, almost cake-like flavor has emerged. The retrohale is very smooth with just a touch of the spice. The wrapper has developed a split above the ring. smoke is thick and flavorful. The ash is dropping fairly regularly. The burn is a bit diagonal.
Approaching the final inch the spice has picked up in the retrohale, but the flavor on the palate is solid. The burn has returned to even.
Overall a very good cigar. Apart from the crack in the wrapper and the burn issues, it is excellent. 9.3/10, Joe Bob says check it out.
