Espinosa y Ortega Murcielago Belicoso Cigar Review
This 5.5×52 stick features a slightly box pressed dark chocolate wrapper with a dry fine toothy feel, firm pack, minimal veins, tight invisible seams and a mild tobacco aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw with good medium bodied smoke output showing flavors of a slightly bitter dry tobacco carrying long through the finish. The first third is on the smooth side with great construction showing a bit of sweet earth and a lingering woodiness through the finish. 35 minutes in at the 1/2 way point the sweetness and wood come up a bit overshadowing the earth, while the finish gets short and clean. Ending at the hour mark the cigar proved to be pretty consistent, with no changes in the last third. Thank you to viewer Tom Beery for sending this in for review! And yep, I dorked up the end of the video – it happens!
