Cigar is light chocolate in color.  It has no visible veins or seams and is box pressed.  This cigar is finished with a double cap.

Pre-Light:

Aroma – Barnyard and Manure

Type of Cut – V-Cut

Cold Draw – Hay and Nuts

After Toast:

First Third – ​Initially a really nice mix of toasted nuts, cocoa with spice and pepper hit the palate.  It is a really good flavor to kick this thing off.  Burn is slightly wavy.  Ash is light gray.

Second Third – ​​Real oaky notes begin this third.  Cocoa moves to the background and pepper lightens up. Burn remained wavy.  Ash fell off at the beginning of this section – around 2.25 inches.

Final Third – ​Spice and nuts come back into play with a slight citrus.  Finishes back to oak and pepper notes just like the beginning of this light. Really nice finish.  Burn turned perfect.

Suggested Pairing:

Domaine Loubejac Rosé

Overall Experience:

Overall, I loved this Ave Maria Divinia.  The flavor profile was amazing and played right into my wheel house.  It is a complex cigar but not crazy in regards to swings of transitions.  I would recommend this cigar to anyone.
