This is a traditional cheroot cigar about 6″ long and very thin with a double taper. You can choose to smoke it whole, as I do, or cut it in half for two smaller sticks, the choice is yours. It has a very firm pack, rustic texture, oily feel, dark brown mottled color, big veins, tight seams and a pungent latakia tobacco aroma, which is an aromatic intense sweet campfire smell. Not something you want around other cigars for sure. First light reveals A great draw with medium-full bodied smoke giving smooth sweet damp earth and a tiny pepper zing on the long finish. Burning fairly quickly, flavors at the 1/2 way point mellow to a medium body, just adding the dark campfire or fire cured taste to the draw. The as is very short, the burn fast and the experience smooth. Ending at 45 minutes the last 1/2 showed no changes but did get too hot for my taste. Burn time slowed way down as it went through the larger center section and construction was perfect. Thank you to ItalianSmokes.com for sending this for review!
