1st Review and Tasting - 3/27/23 - Lunch

Best time or food type pairings:

Mfr Flavor notes: The profile is held down by a unique honey note, overtop layers of vanilla, coffee, earth, and bread.

Cold Draw

earthier cedar notes with medium hints of sweetness from the draw, but not the wrapper, feels pleasant First Third:

Creamy notes here can taste the honey and bread undertones

Full flavors without being overpowering

Mild pepper mid tongue on aftertaste, but flavorful, not spicy

Earthy notes coming through as burn continues, flavorful but not overpowering or “dirty”

Consistent and even burn

Second Third:

More earthy notes and mild spice comes though as transition to 2nd begins

Still pleasant and medium bodied


Spice notes on the back of the tongue 30 sec + after exhale

Transitioning to less sweet notes, much more floral and earthy flavor, still creamy

Final Third:

More balance

Cream and light honey/bread notes coming through and earth notes recede

Returns a lot of 1st third flavor profiles.

Overall Notes:

Very creamy and pleasant cigar. Nothing standout spectacular, but still very enjoyable and could be smoked during any occasion

Even burn throughout

Not like a Maduro, feels like a mid body traditional flavor profile
