Fable Forth Prime LP P Versus NP Cigar Review – This 7.25×52 box pressed stick features a very oily, toothy dark chocolate wrapper with a firm pack, minimal veins, right invisible seams, large double cap and pungent hay and cocoa aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw with plumes of thick rich full bodied smoke pouring of sweet creamy textured notes of cocoa, pepper and cayenne all building on the long finish. The first third hits with a complex smooth medium-full blend of apricot, hazelnut, dry coca and keeps the spicy combo through the finish. Burn is good, smoke production and draw are perfect. The 1/2 way point comes at 35 minutes where the burn is an issue, tunneling every 10 minutes or so requiring a relight. Flavors drop the sweetness adding a dark damp earth to the cocoa and ramping up the black pepper flavor both on the draw and finish. Ending at 1:05 the last third shifts again to a deep leather, nuttiness and hint of cocoa with the pepper dialing down and dropping the spice. Burn is back to very good. Body is still at medium-full with the strength ramping up to medium by the band.
