After Toast:

First Third – The flavor profile starts with cream, salted nuts, nutmeg and a subtle pepper on the finish. Some cinnamon notes hit the palate during this third as well. The burn is perfect and ash holds up strong.

Second Third – A ton of salted nuts, baking spice, and vanilla notes dance on the palate with a light leather and pepper on the finish. The burn remains perfect and ash fell at the mid-point of the cigar.

Final Third – Cedar, salted nuts, perfumed florals and leather all come in that exact sequence entering this third. The baking spices are also heavy on the finish. An earthy component guides you to the final puff.

Rum – Havana Club

Overall Experience:

A beautiful complex smoke experience with tons of flavors to whet the palate. This stick had me salivating the entire time, which impressed me immensely. A fantastic cigar all around. Highly recommend picking this one up at your local shop!
