Unwrapping this cigar, I’m trying not to get my hopes up about this experience. An interesting concoction of brown sugar, raisin, curry, and chili powder is presented on the foot. The wrapper is mottled, rustic, and features the infamous Fuente glue. A cold draw is intoxicatingly sweet with just a tingle of spice pinging the tongue.
Let’s begin with a little preface. I first burned this cigar two nights before Thanksgiving, and instantly fell in love with it. I remember the foot smelling of chocolate covered fruit, and the first third smoking much like that as well. Of course, I brought one home and expected to do the review today of an Eye of the Shark that had a few weeks rest.
Fast forward to yesterday – a friend located and shipped my 5 Eye of the Shark’s. Or, Eyes of the Shark. I opened these up and was immediately assaulted with bananas, banana bread, and the slightest hint of milk chocolate.
