Another choice found in the @mymonthlycigars July offering. The red/brown maduro wrapper is modeled, has prominent veins and a smooth oily sheen. The pre ignition aroma is quite pleasant as raisins mix with sweet grass on the olfactory. A straight cut is applied on a well placed cap to produce an unrestricted draw.
Toward the end of the 1/3, we see mild+ and a wavering ash line as a bright and hairy ash builds on a thin ash fringe. The notes are nothing short of a savory brownie, as notes of cocoa and a baker's spice of clove join on a rich, oily and salty palette. Midway and consistent, a pairing temptation of bourbon crosses the mind as we continue into a long lasting experience.
Moving into the 3/3 and into the medium strength marker, we see some consistency still. The experience is toasty and the vanilla starts to morph into a toasted and creamy brûlée as we continue into the concluding nub. The finale sees the most strength as the sweet values drop and we are left with a flavorful and rich finish.
Very well constructed and blended, this post meal cigar is nothing short of a dessert stick and offers up rich and pungent flavors though its entirety!
