REVIEW

With pre ignition aromas of musty tobacco and leather, we immediately notice a gorgeous, dark cigar. This tightly box pressed cigar is wrapped in a oscuro wrapper that is both matte and void of almost any veining. The second review of the “July” My Monthly Cigars box and a straight cut leads so a lightly labored draw.

A toast/light and although light in strength, a rich and pungent dark coffee lingers as the primary introductory note. The finish also produces notes of cocoa and black currant. Well into the 1/3 and the current has long vanish, leaving notes of a lightened coffee and and introduction of a creamy hazelnut. The finish finds an additional and very faint floral component to add on the pallet. Although the labored draw has yet to clear, an impeccable burn takes place.

A super bright white ash grows on a thin ash fringe. Into the middle of this very rich cigar, we see continued notes of creamy nut, floral values and the intro of the faintest pepper, felt on the mouth. The retro and general strength is mild to mild plus but the taste on the pallet is very rich and oily. Into the last 3rd of this cigar and the flavors start to reach a point of charring.
The forward notes are now more of a lightly bitter walnut and super short espresso. Nothing too powerful to put down but certainly quite poignant! The strength is also climbing alongside a stronger pepper on the mouth.

Considering this cigar's price point and the experience that it offers, it’s basically a “no brainer” cigar. I find most value based cigars to be in the lighter side of strength. This however, is an offering for the “full” enthusiast, giving an experience that starts quite mild and slowly metamorphosis’s to a pepper bomb.
