La Caya II Habano Churchill Cigar Review
This 7×50 stick features a tan wrapper with many imperfections, stretch marks, splotches and lumps. A very uneven roll, minimal veins, tight seams and a smooth dry paper feel with a faint grassy aroma. First light reveals a snug draw with minimal smoke output, slightly sweet smooth oily grassy flavors and with a mild-medium body. The first third has good burn, very even and consistent with good smoke output, and flavors of a smooth wood and grass with a slightly chemical sweetness that lingers through the long finish. Head construction is poor with no shoulder and a large patch coming loose above where the band would be. 40 minutes in near the 1/2 way point flavors remain unchanged, burn is very good, draw opened up a touch and smoke output increased. Ending at 1:25 where it got too hot for my taste, the flavors remained very consistent all the through, only changing to a dry parched mouth feel at the end. Thank you very much to viewer Ralph for sending this in for review!
