What does Rocky Patel say about the cigar?

What do I say about the cigar?

Initial Light

The cigar feels good in your hand. The wrapper is velvety to the touch, oily, and a consistent color without blemishes. Lots of cocoa, earth, tobacco flavors on the cold draw. After the first light I was getting coffee followed by pepper or spice.

First Third:  

The burn was a bit one sided but the cigar corrected itself quickly. No other burn issues. Lots of cocoa, earth, wood, and spice, (maybe cinnamon or cedar).

Second Third:  

Spice and creaminess, lots of wood like cedar or cinnamon and hints of cocoa and coffee on the long finish.

Final Third

Cocoa is the predominant flavor, with coffee and spice. This cigar is very creamy at this point.

Final Thoughts:  

Don’t smoke this cigar to fast. This is a cigar you want to slowly enjoy with a cup of coffee, or your favorite spirts. The cigar band is beautiful, the cigar is a fantastic smoke. I would not recommend this to someone just starting with cigars as it is a medium full. The cigar is made well and worth enjoying.
