The Cavatina is a collaboration with James Brown of Black Label Trading Co. (& BLK WKS Studios). There is not a whole lot of other information out there, so let’s get to it.

Prelight: The wrapper of the Cavatina has a nice medium aroma of leather, earth and some barnyard spice. The foot is completely different, with a caramel sweetness that turns into a delicious dulce de leche. The cold draw is smooth, with a spicy, dry finish.
Beginning: The first thing I notice from the Cavatina is the amount of smoke that it produces. Next I notice the creamy profile, with a prominent honey note up front. In the background is a woody/grassy note, followed by a medium, dry finish. The retrohale has a nice little black pepper burn, which mixes very well with the rest of the profile. Razor sharp burn and a solid ash, make for a great first third.
Middle: Starting in the first third, I was getting vague floral notes, but they finally make a full appearance here. It’s not the prominent note, but it’s there. It is mixed with a creamy profile of earth and a very dry, powdered cocoa note.
End: There is a very interesting transition here, as a dry, bakers type chocolate note takes over. I didn’t notice any other major changes, which wasn’t an issue for as the profile is quite tasty.
Final Thoughts: Another great cigar with a few interesting and unique flavors. The construction on this corona was spot on and didn’t need any help. The Cavatina is a solid cigar, a definite must try if you can find some.
