First Third – Oak, nuts and leather are the initial flavors to the start of this cigar. Pretty simple start here with medium body. The burn was wavy and ash held through the third.
Second Third – Oak and a spicy note come out in this third followed by that same leather finish. Body remains medium to medium (+) and ash falls at beginning of this third. The burn remains wavy.
Final Third – Nuts and spice are the main flavor characteristics here and the leather turns real hearty on the finish. The smoke is picking up strength on route to the finish.

For the price point, this HC Series Habano 2 is a good cigar. I don’t think it was anything crazy with the three main flavors remaining consistent throughout the smoke, but it was good nonetheless. Can’t beat it for $4.50.
