First Third – This one starts out with pepper, cedar and nutty notes. The pepper holds the finish down for a while in between puffs. The nutty notes really take the stage after the cigar settles in. The burn was slightly wavy, and ash held through the third.
Second Third – The nutty notes mixed with some baking spice here are a nice change during the transition. A subtle leather like note begins towards the end on the finish. The burn sharpens up and ash fell at the mid point.
Final Third – The flavor really picks up here and the nutty notes really get heavy and almost roasted like. The baking spice is also present along with a nice cocoa and now that leather note that began in the second third really hangs tight on the finish with some pepper.
Scotch – Johnnie Walker Green
Wine – Spier Rose
This Nat Cicco Aniversario 1965 is a nice full-bodied smoke experience from start to finish. Plenty of things happening in the flavor profile to keep the palate entertained for a long time between puffs. The price point of $5.00 for a 91pt. rated stick is a steal. The Nat Cicco guys really put together a great smoke with this one. I haven’t seen these in many of the brick and mortar stores, but if you google them, you will find them online.
Cigar Aficionado – 91pts.
