The cigar is a rich dark chocolate color with a few evident veins and invisible seams. The stick is box pressed and finished with a double cap.

Type of Cut – Straight
Cold Draw – Wet Cedar and Nuts
First Third – Earthy notes kick this thing off with some woody flavors. There is almost a vegetable note that I find interesting on this one in the beginning followed by some black pepper on the back of your palate. Burn was razor sharp and ash held strong.
Second Third – A black coffee note comes out along with toasted oak flavors. The cigar has a tangy component as well, but not quite citrus and not cedar. The burn remained perfect and ash fell at the halfway point of the cigar.
Final Third – Final third is really rich with oak, deep earth and black coffee flavors.
Bourbon – Knob Creek
Overall, this was a decent small short smoke that probably would be perfect with coffee in the morning as a complementary flavor profile. A real rich medium bodied smoke experience that keeps your mind trying to dissect the flavors as they are much different than most smokes out there today. Anything with a Cameroon wrapper has something a little special in terms of flavor. Give it a shot.
