Pre-Light:

After Toast:

First Third – A mild cream and nutty note starts this off mixed with some cedar and light spice. The burn is sharp and the ash fell at the 2-inch mark just before the start of the 2ndthird.

Second Third – The creamy nutty notes stay put here but an addition of a light leathery finish is added along with a subtle white pepper. At the mid point of the stick, the flavor turns to nutmeg and brown sugar. A really nice change here. Burn remained sharp.

Final Third – The nutty spice notes come back in this third with the light leathery pepper finish. Bringing the cigar full circle back to the core flavors really ends this stick beautifully. The burn remained sharp.

Suggested Pairing:

Wine – Chandon Etoile Rose

Rye – WhistlePig

Overall Experience:

We thought the Nat Cicco HHB Super Premium by Nat Cicco Cigars was a solid smoking experience with plenty of flavors to make the palate salivate. Between the creamy notes, nuts, cedar, leather and pepper there is plenty going on with this stick to keep you reaching for the next puff. If you can find this one out there, pick it up!
