5 Vegas High Primings Churchill Cigar Review
This 7×52 stick features a dark brown smooth oily wrapper with a firm pack, minimal veins, tight invisible seams, double cap and rich musty tobacco aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw with plentiful rich medium-full bodied smoke output showing flavors of a slightly bitter oily creamy tobacco with a bit of pepper through the smooth finish. The first third shows rich flavors of a musty aged tobacco but on the lighter side, with a smooth, oily, creamy texture and a bit of pepper and spice through the long earthy finish. 25 minutes in the ash drops off just starting the 2nd third. Flavors take on a slightly sweet earth on the draw, continuing on through the finish which has a bit of a peppery grit in the back of my throat. Ending at 1:20 the last third shows no flavor shifts, just bringing up the strength to a medium. Thank you very much to Bob Davis for sending this in for review!
