El Güegüense Churchill Cigar Review

This 7×48 stick features a dark brown red hued wrapper with a firm even pack, minimal veins, tight invisible seams, oily smooth feel, triple cap and a musty hay aroma.  First light reveals a big zesty black pepper with a slight sweet earth, woodiness and perfect draw with a big bold pepper through the finish.  The first third drops the sweetness and goes to a straight pepper and tobacco combo with a touch of earth coming in through the long finish.  It’s fairly plain combo thus far and you have to be a pepper fan with it’s deep zing and finish.  Construction is flawless with a nice slow burn, perfect draw and plentiful smooth smoke production.  The 1/2 way point comes at 35 minutes dropping a solid chunk of ash.  Flavors go to a medium body with a creamy slightly sweet coffee taking over the draw followed by just a touch of the pepper remaining.  Finishing up at 1:10 the last third goes to a straight bold coffee note with a touch of fleeting sweetness and cream going to a long smooth coffee finish.

    Thanks, Bryan. I had bought some of the Churchill’s (where I bought these were out of the Corona Gorda’s) and I was curious how the sizes impacted the flavors, if any. Overall profile seems consistent with a bit of a difference in creaminess and burn with the larger Churchill. Appreciate the comparative!
