Reviewer: The Cigar Authority
The cold draw of the cigar offers up a hint of sweetness mixed with earth and cedar, while the aroma off the foot is slightly spicy with a touch of cinnamon. This is a cigar I have been looking forward to smoking for a while.
Once the cigar is lit, there are notes of leather and wood. There is a hint of pistachio. On the retrohale there are subtle spices that are really enjoyable and prolong the finish.
Moving on to the second third, the aforementioned pistachio notes really begin to take hold as the wood and leather slide into the background. The retrohale continues to serve up notes of warm spices that continue on the finish.
In the last third the notes of nuts, specifically pistachios continue to dominate the palate. As the cigar comes notes of wood and leather continue on the finish.
