A. Flores AFR-75 Sublime Cigar Review – This 5×56 stick features a very dark chocolate firmly packed wrapper with small veins, tight invisible seams, a large double pigtailed cap, very oily slightly toothy feel and pungent cocoa and earth aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw with mild-medium light soft silky smoke with flavors of a natural sweet tobacco and very light earth with a long finish of the same. The first third burns a little wavy but with no performance problem. Burn time is very slow producing now medium bodied plentiful smoke with musty sweet aged tobacco, cream and graham cracker notes with a long smooth finish. The 1/2 way point comes at 35 minutes dropping the ash in a solid chunk that made a big thud when it hit the ground. Flavors are almost the same just dropping the graham cracker on the draw and adding a bit of pepper tingle to the finish while the body continues to ramp up, now at medium-full. Ending at 1:05 the last third holds the same flavor profile with the addition of a mild-medium strength just adding to the experience.
