CLE Connecticut Diadema Cigar Review
This 48x54x48 stick features a bowling pin shape, medium tan slick glove soft wrapper with an even slightly spongy give, minimal veins, tight invisible seams, triple cap and rich potent cedar aroma. First light reveals a great draw with medium bodied light & airy smoke showing creamy textured syrupy wood flavors with a long finish adding a touch of pepper zing. The first third keeps the same profile just producing a slightly thicker smoke. Performance is flawless with a perfect draw and razor sharp burn. 25 minutes in at the 1/2 way point the draw has shifted to a medium-full body of a cherry nut with a sweet syrupy wood and earth finish. Ending at the hour mark, the last third holds the same flavors but adds quite a strength kick evening out with the body at medium-full. Getting too hot for me with an inch remaining it had perfect construction all the way through. Thank you very much to viewer Ken Cioffredi for sending this one in for review!
