PIO Resurrection Churchill Cigar Review
This 6.5×48 stick features a dark brown almost grey wrapper with a nice oil sheen, mottled appearance with minimal veins, tight invisible seams, a sharp box press and thin wrapper. Unfortunately this one has a torn wrapper on on of the edges, hopefully the binder holds. It has almost no aroma just a faint tobacco. First light reveals no breach from the wrapper tear, a very loose draw with excellent thick smoke production. Flavors are oily and very smooth with a mild-medium soft tobacco and earth with a fairly short and clean finish of the same. The first third produces copious amounts of thick smoke with no effort. It is a fairly quick burn, taking off an inch every 10 minutes or so. Flavors are up to a solid medium with a smooth creamy slightly peppery tobacco, holding the same through the finish. 40 minutes in just past the 1/2 way point the only shift has been the introduction of a small coffee flavor to the end of the draw through the finish. Everything else remains the same. The ash holds on for 1 1/2″ at a time falling off in solid chunks. Ending at 1:05 the last third showed no further flavor shifts, staying nice and cool to the nub. Thank you very much to PIO Cigar Company for sending this for review!
