Reviewer: The Cigar Authority
The cold draw of the Atabey has some earthy components and a slight salted caramel essence as well. The foot of the cigar is cedar and a hint of earth.
After toasting the foot of the largest Atabey to date, there is a slight butterscotch note and elements of a sweet wood such as maple. Progressing into the first third of the Ritos, there is a bit of spice that compliments the maple notes and buttery finish.
The second third of the cigar is as smooth as butter with some elements of roasted nuts and maple standing out. Through the nose there is a bit of red pepper. One should note that the thinner ring gauges lack the spice through the nose. Around the halfway point of the cigar, the salted caramel notes experienced on the cold draw return.
The last third sees the pepper through the nose turn it down a notch with notes that remind me of rye, nuts, maple and the finish is buttery smooth with the slightest hint of earth.
