A nice and oily maduro wrapper. Cold draw: Barnyard and hay. Lights up with spicy smoke, thin to start with, which progressively become thicker and meatier. After a few minutes, the flavor profile gently moves towards notes of conifers with a hint of coffee. Medium-bodied until about half-way through, when it ramps up rapidly. The final third brings little change: the spices mingle with wood and a few nutty notes. A very intense finish. A good cigar, which we have rated a little higher than we might have because of its very attractive price.
Also available: Robusto (140 mm x 50 – €5.50)
