This long perfecto has a beautiful dark brown smooth wrapper. Early notes are earth and cedar. The early retrohale is very smooth. The ash is tight but the burn is a bit diagonal.
In the first third the flavor profile remains constant; it is also very rich. The ash holds tight and the burn returns to even.
During the second third notes of white pepper join the flavor profile. Not overpowering, and the retrohale remains smooth. I chickened out and tapped the solid ash into the ashtray. The burn remains perfect.
Approaching the final inch the complexity of the flavor profile is almost sublime. The rich earth and cedar touched with the perfect balance of white pepper. The ash remains solid and the burn is even.
Overall an excellent cigar. It’s a bit pricey, but I am satisfied that I got my money’s worth. Impeccable construction as well. 9.6/10, Joe Bob says check it out.
