Reviewer: The Cigar Authority
The cold draw of the Byron Elegantes serves up notes of molasses and oats while the aroma off the foot has hints of cedar, molasses and caramel.
Once the cigar is lit, there is a subtle pepper note with notes of graham crackers and cinnamon. As the cigar progresses into the first third, hints of cedar and honey develop as the cinnamon fades to the background. The retrohale of the cigar offers subtle notes of licorice and cedar and is as smooth as the cigar itself.
Moving on to the second third of the Elegantes, the sweetness remains in the background in the form of honey, but the primary note here is cedar with touches of licorice, wheat and graham crackers. The cigar is incredibly balanced and the retrohale continues to show nuances of licorice and cedar with a moderate finish.
The final third of the Byron Elegantes is as complex as the first two-thirds and just as smooth. The cedar notes are dominant with subtle nuances of licorice, honey, graham and wheat. The finish is slightly earthy and the retrohale smooth with additional licorice components.
