Construction/Appearance:

This is a light walnut colored leather with plentiful small veins and visible yet tight seams. 

Pre-Light: 

Aroma – Cream, Sweet Cedar, Nuts. 

Type of Cut – Straight

Cold Draw – Cream, Nuts and Cedar 

After Toast:

First Third – Cream and salted nut like notes really kick this off with a light coffee note on the finish. I get some steel / metal like notes here too but intermittently. The burn is wavy and ash fell at half an inch. 

Second Third – The Cream, nuts and coffee notes all hang in there in this third with a very light white pepper. The burn turns sharp. 

Final Third – Creamy nuts and cedar come forth in the final third of this cigar along with that salty note from earlier. The burn remains sharp. 

Suggested Pairing:

Wine – Domaine Serene Evenstad Reserve

Bourbon – Bib & Tucker

Overall Experience:

This Man O War Virtue is everything you would expect from a Connecticut wrapper with the cream, nuts, coffee and cedar all rotating through the tasting experience. This was an easy mild smoke that is a perfect breakfast cigar with a cup of coffee in the morning. Definitely a perfect cigar for those just starting as it won’t over power.
