Joya de Nicaragua Antaño Dark Corojo Pesadilla Cigar Review

This 4.7×60 stick features a dark chocolate slightly toothy firm wrapper with minimal veins, tight seams, a velvet feel and rich mustiness, pepper and chocolate aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw with light but decent smoke output, medium body flavors of an oily musty chocolate with a short clean finish. The first third proves to be a difficult burn already requiring a large touchup to even out. Flavors are quite mild with minimal smoke production and flavors of a brief cherry sweetness, light earth and darker wood notes. 25 minutes in the burn line needed another large touchup, flavors remained unchanged and the cigar only puffed well by taking double draws. 50 minutes in it completely went out needing a relight and flavors just went to a hot wet aftertaste. Ending at 1 hour the last bit got very warm and never recovered. Thank you very much to viewer Julio for generously sending me this for review, I really appreciate it!
