Ezra Zion Eminence Belicoso Grand Toro Cigar Review
This 5×58 stick features a dark chocolate firm oily wrapper with medium veins, tight seams, a fine sandpaper feel and rich sweet chocolate and hay aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw with copious amounts of thick medium-full bodied smoke giving a very deep and substantial slightly bitter and peppery earth with a long lasting finish of the same. The first third continues the same flavor profile, loosening the draw slightly requiring a bit of attention to get normal smoke output. The 1/2 way point hits at 40 minutes changing the profile just slightly adding a bit of chocolate on the draw and a mild strength coming in. Burn is excellent, dropping the ash in a solid chunk. Ending at 1:20 it held the same body and flavors while the strength ramped up to medium-full. Thank you very much to Ezra Zion cigars for providing this sample fore review!
