The nose of the cigar has some earthy notes, but once I clip the cap it opens up to reveal some sweet molasses. The cold draw of the Byron Poems serves up some continued molasses that is easily detected and easy to get lost in. I used a cedar stick to light this cigar because I feel a cigar of this caliber deserves to be given that extra attention. One lit there is some sweetness and a hint of coffee.
As we progress into the first third of the cigar it is evident that this cigar is above and beyond so many cigars on the market today. There is a sweetness present over notes of nuts and cedar and a slightly earthy finish.
In the second third of the cigar the Byron continues to deliver a profile that is described by one word, Luxury. The notes of nuts and cedar remain, but when the ash falls off at the halfway point of the cigar some elements of dried fruit develop with a slightly sweet finish that reminds me of a tangerine.
The final third of the cigar begins as we remove the secondary band and the cigar continues to provide the smoking experience of a lifetime. Incredibly supple, smooth and complex the Byron Poemas serves up notes of cedar, molasses, coffee and pecans. The finish is short, and enjoyable without lingering.
