This is a beautiful looking cigar. Tight seems, minimal veins, and a tight pack. The aroma I'm getting off this cigar, is a very pronounced leather.
On the first draw, i'm hit with a very pronounced leather. Finish is medium in length. Flavors on the finish are very enjoyable. Im getting a nice spice, accompanied with a brown sugar sweetness. Construction is beautiful. Burn is very even, draw is perfect, and it's giving off a very generous amount flavorful smoke. Very enjoyable so far. Lets see what the next third gives us.
Jumping into the second third, flavors mainly stay consistent. Slight transition on the finish. I'm getting that same spice, and brown sugar note, but a taste of molasses had crept in. Very enjoyable flavor combinations. The finish is up in length, lasting into the next draw. Construction remains flawless. Burn is extremely sharp, and this cigar is giving off plumes of awesome smoke. Lets see what the next third gives us.
Jumping into this last third, flavors still remains consistent. Finish is very long, lasting well into the next draw. On the draw I'm picking up a slight surge in pepper. Leaving a nice coating on the lips. The brown sugar, and leather are still very distinct, and leave a great coating on the palette. The smoke on this cigar is extremely creamy. Very enjoyable smoke. Construction again, remains perfect. Draw is excellent, and the burn line is as sharp as it gets. I made it all the way to the nub in about an hour and thirty minutes.
This stick is great. Personally one of my favorite smokes. Amazing quality. Ezra Zion offers excellent construction, with some of the best blending combinations. If you haven't check them out, I strongly suggest you do so.
