This 6×54 barberpole belicoso stick features a dual twisted wrapper with alternating dark chocolate and dark brown strips both with small veins, tight seams, an even slightly soft pack and pungent cocoa aroma. First light reveals a good draw with smooth sweet and creamy mild-medium bodied earth and a hint of cocoa on the long finish. The first third performs flawlessly at a solid medium body with a complex blend of a sweet cream, oak, smooth earth and mild pepper zing lasting to the next draw. The 1/2 way point comes at 35 minutes dropping the ash in a solid chunk while the flavors are unchanged if just a bit smoother. Ending at 1:10 the last third showed no further changes. Thank you to Isabela Cigars for sending this for review!
