This 5.50 stick features a dark chocolate wrapper with a soft satin feel, even spongy give, a couple small veins, tight seams, double cap and rich chocolate aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw with a ton of rich, thick creamy chewy smoke, showing medium-full bodied flavors of a smooth chocolate and earth, and a bit of pepper on the long warm finish. The first third brings the same flavor profile, burning very quickly but perfectly even, dripping the ash at the end of the third in a solid chunk. Body is down to a medium, the finish is still long and smooth. Hitting the last third at 35 minutes in, the chocolate drops replaced by a smooth dark coffee which carries through the finish. Ending at 50 minutes the last bit showed no further changes before it got too hot for my taste. Thank you to C&C Cigars for providing this for review!
