Cazadores by La Perla Habana
Size: Robusto 5 x 50
Wrapper – Criollo
With pre-ignition aromas of a strong and pleasant milk chocolate, this cigar comes to us from the April 2022 Box from My Monthly Cigars. Considering its “budget” status, this cigar has acceptable construction, is wrapped in a reddish/brown hued covering and has a well placed cap. A straight cut leads to medium draw resistance.
Right into this review and about ¼” in. Notes of toasted almonds with a general creamy value. The step is ultra smooth and a mild cigar begins developing. Fast burning, we make it in the middle of the 1/3.
Still consistent and joined by some sweet caramel. The burn has had a light touch up but nothing to rob us of any pleasure. A bright and ultra flaky ash starts to grow in a very thin ash fringe. Care must be given as the ash is quite delicate.
Into the 2/3 and still mild with mineral notes merging to that toasty almond. In general very consistent and the burn has not misbehaved since the initial correction. The ash, although still bright white, has solidified.
Into the concluding 3/3 and still consistent. Pepper and a toasted sugar are now on stage joining the mix as we move into a medium experience. The finish has some mild charred values but given the formula of eco/price point, it doesn’t affect the enjoyment. The nub does see another increase in pepper and general strength as we conclude a perfect walk in the park stick.
Very well priced and made by A. J. Fernandez, this is a great bundle smoke, offering stable and consistent notes alongside some good construction to the nub.
