4 x 52 - Ecuador Habano Ligero - Single
A Full Bodied Stick!, 15th Mar 2017
Reviewer: The Cigar Authority
The cold draw of the cigar serves up notes of caramel and a hint of cedar while the foot of the cigar has a hint of earth, mocha and cedar notes. It’s important to properly toast and light this cigar as it utilizes a lot of high priming tobacco.
Once the cigar is lit there are notes pepper on the palate and through the nose on the retrohale. As the pepper subsides a bit there is some sweetness that is reminiscent of cherry. Also present are some hints of coffee and a sweet but spicy finish.
In the second half of the cigar, the sweetness really begins to shine with bits of leather and coffee. The pepper remains strong on the retrohale, but the sweetness of the finish creates an enjoyable contrast.
