This was my first cigar of the day and I paired it with a black coffee with some floral notes, not an overpowering coffee considering I am reviewing a Connecticut cigar. The wrapper offered me the scent of sweet hay and the cold draw offered a mild, dry hay flavor and the draw was very easy. Cant wait to torch this!
Within just a few minutes, honey notes begin to rise to the top in a phenomenal display of sophistication. Mild spice tickles the back of the tongue and throat, but it’s something you have to look for. This cigar starts off very smooth, allowing you to really grasp hold of all the flavors without shying away from it. A retro hale emphasizes that book leather from the cold draw, as well as a convenient store style chocolate chip cookie flavor that I just can’t get enough of.
