CO 2nd Third Cigar Review – This 2nd release in the CO Cigar series features a dark brown 5×52 firmly packed wrapper with an oily satin feel, slight tooth, minimal veins, tight seams, large double cap and pungent sweet wood aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw with mild-medium smoke output showing flavors of a slightly bitter grassy note and zing metallic finish. The draw is perfect with just a touch of resistance. The first third quickly drops the bitterness going neutral with medium body flavors of a creamy leather, zingy wood all on a long smooth finish. Hitting the 1/2 way point 35 minutes in, the 2nd third drops the ash in a solid chunk with the body eeking to a medium-full. The flavor profile changes slightly with a tiny bit of natural sweetness on the draw with the wood deepening and the leather trailing off from the finish, which is still long with a very smooth retrohale. Ending at 1 hour where it got too warm for my taste the last third held the same flavors to the end. These will be ready to ship from the Blanco humidor in mid August for $8 ea. sold exclusively in 5-packs for $40. I have zero financial involvement, this is purely for fun and marketing.
