Wrapper: San Andreas
Filler: Nicaraguan & Honduran
Cigars Smoked: 2
Both cigars that I smoked for this review had tight draws. Pre-light draw reveals roasted coffee and cocoa. I can already tell this is going to be an enjoyable experience.
The first third opens up with a milk chocolate profile. This is accompanied by general nuttiness and cocoa undertones. Even the retrohale produces hints of milk chocolate.
In the second third the milk chocolate takes the forefront and the cocoa subsides to an aftertaste. There is also a slight spice that develops, which I would describe as a general spice. This cigar is very enjoyable and the flavor profile is right up my alley.
The last third continues with the milk chocolate and cocoa profile. The leather and spice additions are becoming slightly stronger. I would describe this cigar as having dark flavors if that makes sense. Everything just has a dark flavorful essence.
Overall, while I thoroughly enjoyed this cigar a few things brought the score down. First, the price is slightly high in my mind for what it delivers. Second, the two that I smoked had tight draws.
Thus, this cigar rates an 8.5 out of 10, meaning I would pick up a few in a shop.
