Construction/Appearance:

The cigar is velvety to the touch with a medium brown leather like coloring to it. There are a few decent sized veins and visible but tight seams. 

Pre-Light: 

Aroma – Sweet Tobacco and Wood

Type of Cut – Straight

Cold Draw – Cedar and Raisin

After Toast:

First Third – Nuts and a spiciness kick this cigar off upon the light. The finish is interesting with a note orchard fruit skins. A really cool finishing note in our book. The body is medium in this third. The burn is sharp and ash holds through the third.

Second Third – The nuts are the dominant note and spiciness calms down a bit here but that orchard fruit note really amps up to just before the finish and lingers. Awesome note I must say. The burn remains sharp and ash falls at the halfway point.

Final Third – Nutty notes mixed with baking spices show themselves in this third with that orchard fruit note moving back to the finish. Cigar remains medium bodied. The burn remains sharp. 

Suggested Pairing:

Bourbon – Bib & Tucker

Wine – Meiomi Pinot Noir

Overall Experience:

Overall the Casa Cuevas Habano brings the spice and orchard fruit notes all throughout the experience, which was absolutely awesome! I was really impressed with this smoke and the experience as a whole. This is one of those must buy smokes if you come across it.
