Well constructed Figurado with a very smooth dark wrapper. The bunch is firm and the draw is perfect. Tonight’s beverage is a cold Topo Chico.
The initial flavors are very earthy with coffee and dark cocoa. The retrohale is surprisingly smooth. The burn is excellent.
In the first third the strength ramps up as the burn clears the hump. This is definitely a full bodied cigar and I’m glad I ate first. A cloying sweetness creeps into the flavor profile. The burn remains perfect.
During the second third a crack appears in the wrapper. The burn remains even across the split. Some cinnamon has joined the flavor profile, which remains otherwise consistent. The retrohale remains very smooth.
Approaching the final inch pepper joins the flavor profile, both on the palate and in the retrohale. This is definitely a must have for all fans of the Jacob’s Ladder line. The spiciness has been kicked up for an excellent flavor profile.
This is a very good looking box-pressed cigar with a very smooth wrapper with only a couple of minor veins. The draw is perfect.
