This 6 7/8×48 stick offers a dark brown hearty, oily wrapper with a few imperfections, small veins, tight seams and a good looking double cap. The aroma is rich tobacco with a little bit of pepper and the texture is soft and velvety. First light reveals a snug draw with medium body flavors of a dry, bitter grass and tobacco with a lingering dry finish. The first third changes to a deep slightly sweet leather, medium bodied at most with an earthy finish and a touch of pepper in the back of the throat. 40 minutes in to the 1/2 way point, the only change is the leather becoming more of a general earthiness. The draw is still snug and it doesn’t put off a great amount of smoke, I have to watch it so I don’t overheat it with the firm and frequent draws. 1 hours in the last third finally opens up the draw, doubling smoke output and taking the flavors to medium-full, bringing back the leather and adding a nice creamy taste. Ending at 1:20 the remainder of the cigar was just as pleasant! Thank you very much to UrbanoCigars.com for providing this for review!
This 6×52 stick offers a dark chocolate oily wrapper with small veins, invisible seams, a very even crushed velvet texture with a slight spongy give and a rich oily chocolaty tobacco aroma. First light revels full bodied flavors of a sily smooth chewy thick smoke, though not a lot of it. Flavors are a deep earth, chocolate and mild pepper zing through the long finish. Draw is perfect with just a bit of resistance. The first third gives solid medium body flavors of a super thick and rich dry aged tobacco with a touch of a sweet chocolate and pepper. 20 minutes in I encountered a strange burn problem, with a tiny shaft burning through the center of the cigar, and 1/2 of the stick getting very hot and mushy. It stopped putting out smoke yet continued to burn. After spending 10 minutes correcting the burn, manually lighting 1/2″ of wrapper and getting through a section that seemed to be rolled with a tube down the center, it is back to burning correctly. 40 min in at the 1/2 way point, flavors returned to a medium-full body treat of rich creamy milk chocolate, a slightly sweet eart and smooth tobacco with a touch of pepper and long smooth finish. 1:15 in at the band point the burn has slowed significantly flavors have changed to a creamy textured, smooth slightly sweet earth with a long earth and pepper finish. I have given it a couple minor touchups, but overall performance is good. Ending at 1:40 min where it got hot probably due to the touch-ups near the end, I ended it as flavors got a bit warm and washed out. If this hadn’t of had the burn issues it would be pushing the two hour mark easily, as I burned off more than an inch correcting the burn. Thank you very much to viewer Jonathan Novatt for generously sending this in for review, I greatly appreciate it!
