Reviewer: The Cigar Authority
The cold draw reminds me of walking into an old butcher shop where sawdust is on the floor. Also present is a sweetness, that borders on molasses which is more dominant on the nose from the foot of the F55 Quattro. Once the cigar is lit the first third of the smoke serves up some strong earthy notes with a touch of sweetness.
In the second third of the cigar the sweetness begins to define itself as a rich cocoa, with a slightly floral note lingering in the background. The earth experienced in the first third is virtually none existent at this point of the smoke.
In the last third of the cigar a faint earth returns with cocoa continuing until the end of the cigar when it becomes the reverse. Once the earth becomes the core note I put the cigar down with a half inch remaining.
