La Herencia Cubana CORE Belicoso Cigar Review
This 6.2×52 box pressed stick features a dark chocolate velvet textured wrapper with small veins, tight invisible seams, firm pack and milk chocolate aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw with plentiful thick rich oily smoke with a bit of gritty texture to it. It shows medium-full body with smooth creamy chocolate and earth on the draw followed by a long finish of dark chocolate and pepper zing. The first third continues the same performance and flavors. The 1/2 way point comes at 30 minutes continuing the perfect performance, dropping ash after 1.5″. Draw flavors are the same with the end of the finish taking on a bit of a rougher deep lingering earth note. Finishing up at 55 minutes the last third just added a touch of sweetness to the draw as the smoke grew warmer. Thank you very much to viewer Marcos Heyliger for sending this in!
