Size: Double Robusto 6.5 x 55
Wrapper – Mexican
Binder – Mexican

This cigar has an immediate visual appeal. Stunning, from its construction to its perfect, light brown and mildly veined wrapper (see pic). Pre ignition aromas of sweet cocoa/grass abound as a straight cut leads to an open draw.
Getting into the 2/3 and the combustion is excellent, offering a great deal of smoke output on a growing white ash (dark core). The creamy experience also continues with the addition of a milk chocolate in the background. The finish, which is still mild, starts to promote a toasty quality that mixes well with the consistent introductory notes of nougat, wafer and orange peel. This is some seriously distinctive and flavorful Mexican tobacco.
Well passed the halfway marker and medium strength is now in sight. Although still consistent, the citrus value has passed the torch to a more eucalyptus/mineral quality. Absolutely complex, distinctive and exquisite. Into the final 3/3 and although consistent, we do see a general increase in strength to medium and a more prominent toasted quality.
