This is a box pressed, milk chocolate colored cigar. The wrapper is toothy to the touch – almost like a sand paper. Packed tightly with minimal veins and some slight visible seams.
Aroma – Smoked hickory and Coffee
Type of Cut – Straight
Cold Draw – Sweet Cedar and Raisin
First Third – Tangy cedar, sweet oak and a hint of pepper on the finish to begin this cigar. Once this settles, baking spices and cedar hit the palate and the finish turns to leather. About 15 minutes in, we go back to the sweet oak followed by leather. A nice mix of flavor transitions in this third. A solid strong start in my opinion. Burn is sharp and ash fell at the 1.5-inch mark.
Second Third – Oak, cedar and spice come forward in this third. Baking spice with the oak come around again towards the mid-point of the cigar along with a subtle cocoa powder. Leather comes back in on the finish. The burn remains sharp.
Final Third – Cedar and leather start this third followed by more oak, cocoa powder and a citrus flavor. The finish is straight cedar and leather. Most definitely a fuller bodied smoke.
Scotch – Shieldaig Speyside Single Malt 18Yr
The Aging Room Quattro F55 has lots of complexity in this smoke with transitions aplenty. Great full bodied smoking experience. About an hour and half smoke that really takes your palate for a ride around the senses. I would definitely smoke this again.
