Byron Sets The Bar For Greatness!, 14th Mar 2017
Reviewer: The Cigar Authority
Prior to cutting the cap with a double-bladed guillotine, I take in the aroma which incredibly sweet like molasses and mesquite. The cold draw has similar notes with a hint of cedar and almonds. Definitely one of the most incredible cold draws I have ever experienced.
Once the cigar is toasted and lit, the notes are a slight mocha, and ceda. The cigar feels incredibly Cubanesque in the way it smokes. So much so, that I am liking this more than any Behike I have ever smoked. The first third of the cigar doesn’t have any of that prelight sweetness with the primary note being wheat and cedar. It is incredibly smooth.
In the second third of the cigar the flavors and aroma remind me of buttered popcorn from the movie theaters with the melted butter drizzled over the popped kernels. In the background there are notes of cedar and earth, but the focal point here is definitely the buttery sweetness.
The last third of the Byron Londinenses develops some cinnamon notes and a touch of almonds which I am glad to see made the transition from the cold draw. I can’t get over the fact the similarities of this cigar to the Behike. It might be a notch stronger, but the smoking experience for me is very similar. The finish was moderate in length, and had some hints of cocoa and cedar.
