First Third – Floral and rich coffee notes kick this cigar off with a bang. Some salted nutty notes follow in this third as well. Some spicy notes come in like a red pepper once this gets going. The finish gets real earthy. The burn is sharp and ash holds through the third.
Second Third – The floral notes continue followed by cedar, spice and that beautiful earthy like coffee finish. Amazing flavor in this cigar thus far. Feels like a bouquet on your palate. The burn is sharp and ash falls at the beginning of this third.
Final Third – The floral notes are perfumes and great in this third! The cedar note follows along with spicy earth on the finish. Great smoke all around. The burn remains sharp.
Bourbon – Woodford Reserve
Wine – Stags Leap Cellars FAY
This Herrera Esteli Brazilian Maduro is a great complex smoke experience. The range of flavors in the profile are fantastic going all the way from floral to coffee, spice, earth and cedar. I really enjoyed this smoke and think you will too. Check it out if you are given the opportunity!
