After Toast:

First Third – A nice creamy nutty like note starts this cigar off. This transitions into a nice vanilla and cedar like note that just lingers n the palate between puffs. Burn is perfect and ash holds through the third.

Second Third – The creamy nutty like notes comes back to begin this third moving the vanilla to the finish. The burn remained perfect and ash fell off at the 2.5 inch mark.

Final Third – The creaminess gets lighter and the nutty and vanilla notes amp up a bit giving almost a caramel on the palate mixed with a wood like note. Burn remained perfect.

Suggested Pairing:

Whiskey – Jack Daniels Single Barrel

Wine – Fleurs de Prairie Rose

Overall Experience:

This San Lotano Connecticut was a good medium bodied smoke experience with the typical flavors you would expect out of a quality Connecticut stick. Lots of nutty vanilla notes really please the palate especially towards the end when they blended nicely into that caramel note. Nice cigar after a relaxing day and would recommend cigar lovers of all experience levels to try.
