A cold draw on this cigar is very sweet, not unlike Pixie Sticks. Based on prior experience with this densely packed cigar, I decided to dry box it overnight. Rather than twist the pigtail cap, I snipped it off. I’ll be reviewing this one with water today.
The pre-light aroma from the foot brings me back to Christmas morning years ago. I used to always get my Dad a box of Cherry Cordials (lame, I know) and the foot of 1502 XO is just like Cherry Cordials. The pregnant Domestic Engineer agrees and her nose is usually more accurate than mine. A cold draw is even more fascinating, imparting notes of the same cherry cordial but this time it’s alcohol infused.
