La Riqueza No.4 Cigar Review

This 5×48 cigar features a dark chocolate, thick and slightly toothy wrapper with minimal veins, good seams, triple cap and a sweet soapy tobacco aroma. First light reveals rich thick smoke with a slightly snug draw putting out medium bodied flavors of a creamy, oily, sweet leather with a sweet and slick finish. The first third continues the same experience also adding a nice spice kick just on the lips through the finish. The ash holds until the 2nd third falling in a solid chunk. 20 minutes in by the 1/2 way point flavors had shifted a bit dropping the distinct leather for a more general earthiness, also dropping most of the spice. Flavors are medium-full, very thick and rich with no strength kick. Ending at 40 minutes, the last third brought back the sweet creamy leather but also adding a burnt nut flavor on the finish. Thank you very much to viewer HappyTaro for sending this in for review!

    Can’t believe I never left a comment on this one before. This is definitely one of Pete’s most overlooked and underrated lines. A great smoke.

    Wonder what ever happened to HappyTaro. Haven’t seen him around here for quite a while.
