This Cigar is one of the most beautiful cigars I have seen in a long time. The workmanship on this cigar is excellent; the way it is rolled, the color of the tobacco, and cap is what I would call a perfectly made cigar!
When you first light up this cigar the draw is very easy, it has a slight taste of cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice & leather. As you get into the cigar it develops up a smooth creamy texture, with nutmeg, allspice & leather notes growing more pronounced.
By the time I got to the end of the cigar I was holding on to it as if it were my air supply, I smoked it to the nub!!!! Burnt my fingers!
A most unusual aspect of the cigar is the ash; most Cubans I have smoked develop a gray-black ash, most often rough with obvious ridges - but on this Cigar the ash is almost Pure White: I have never seen or smoked a Cuban with an ash with this look to it! It is smooth, white, without mottled black or gray. The ash was 1 ½" long before it fell off.
I liked this cigar so much I ordered one more box to hold on for special occasions. Thank you for suggesting this purchase.
