Joya de Nicaragua Antaño Dark Corojo El Martillo Cigar Review

This 5.5×54 stick features a very dark brown wrapper with a firm even pack (yes I realize I shot the wrong side of the band), slight tooth, oily sheen, minimal veins, tight seams, double cap and rich musty aroma. First light reveals a very loose draw with good smoke output, medium bodied flavors of a deep smooth earthy tobacco while the smoke has a bit of grit and bite to it. The finish if long and smooth with the same flavors. The first third burns very well, only adding a bit of pepper to the draw and finish. The 2nd third develops the body up to medium-full adding a rich black coffee to the end of the draw and lengthening the finish well until the next puff. The ash is a bit flaky holding on for an inch at a time, while smoke output has steadily increased as it burns down. Ending at 1:15 the last third showed no further changes. Thank you very much to viewer David Poole for providing this sample for review!
