First Third – Cedar, cream and spice take the stage with a soft sweet leather-like finish. The body is a solid medium at this point. The cigar has a sharp burn and the ash holds strong.
Second Third – The second third carries over with spice, some jasmine like notes and a leathery finish. The jasmine makes for a truly distinctive component to the smoking experience. The burn remained sharp and ash fell at 2.5 inches.
Final Third – The final third is sweet jasmine, cedar, spice and a nice medium strength leather on the finish. A true medium bodied cigar experience.
Scotch – The Dimple Pinch
This Cohiba Blue was pretty consistent from the second third on when the flavors picked up that jasmine note. As mentioned above, it makes this smoking experience something truly different and unique. A great flavor profile that I think anyone would enjoy. This is a buy in my book.
