Cigar Reviewed: El Rey del Mundo Oscuro
Smoked at: Bella Vista, AR
Has a very nice earthy aroma. Cold draw is similar with faint notes of chocolate and dark coffee. First draw has cedar, earth, dark coffee notes , and pepper on the retrohale. Has a definite tobacco sweetness to the aroma. First third maintains initial notes with some chocolate and cinnamon notes that develop. Second third holds the notes but a noticeable anise aroma comes out briefly. Last third the dark coffee and chocolate notes become more prominent but initial notes are there but subtle. Also develops a creaminess. Some hints of salty caramel show up intermittently throughout. Surprisingly smooth in the last third considering how dark this stick is. Has Burn is very good throughout and holds a nice ash. Very well balanced stick with good complexity.
