Chinnock Cellars Terroir Limited Edition Cigar Review
This 6×52 torpedo features a dark brown, soft slightly oily wrapper with minimal veins, tight invisible seams, an even slightly spongy give and faint tobacco aroma. First light reveals a very snug draw with minimal smoke output and a medium body of silky smooth tobacco flavors adding a tiny bit of pepper zing on the short finish. The first third opens the draw very well producing great creamy plumes of smoke. Flavors are a silky smooth creamy tobacco with a long finish, medium bodied. 40 minutes in passing the 1/2 way point everything remains the same. Construction is very good, not needing any attention, ash holding well and the burn very good. 50 minutes in just starting the last third a nice bit of a darker sweetness and touch of wood joins in, a welcome change from straight tobacco. Ending at 1:15 the last bit went back to just straight smooth tobacco, with the finish getting a bit rougher than the rest of the stick, possibly due to the increase in draw temperature. Thank you very much to Chinnock Cellars Cigars for sending this along for review!
