Appearance: An attractive, smooth, and uniform maduro wrapper. Supple to the touch.

 

Cold draw: Autumnal hints, with lichen and leather. Good draw.

 

Smoking experience:

First third: The first few puffs are elegant and engaging. Beautifully crafted vegetal and roasted aromas (cappuccino). Good draw and good structure.

Second third: Increasingly complex, the cigar serves up vegetal notes, toasted hazelnut, cedar, and a hint of peat. A powerful, tasty, and dynamic smoke.

Final third: Enjoyable flavour right up until the final puffs. Dries up slightly with a little astringence at the very end. A satisfying smoke.

 

When to smoke it: After lunch or after dinner.

 

The ADC’s Conclusion: A very well-made, energetic, powerful, and richly aromatic cigar. Considering its reasonable price, it is very nearly worth 5 bands.

Rate : 4.5 / 5
