Mi Barrio El Forro Cigar Review
This 7×49 stick features an oily dark chocolate slightly spongy wrapper with a dry paper bag texture, minimal veins, tight invisible seams, triple cap and a rich oily musty chocolate aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw with full bodied thick chewy smoke giving flavors of a deep creamy peppery earth and a long zingy finish. The first third backs off a touch on the chewy smoke but overall it’s still very substantial. The deep earth takes on a slightly sweet note adding to the zestiness, pepper and creamy texture all the way through the long finish. Construction is excellent, burning an inch every 15 minutes. Hitting the 1/2 way point at 50 minutes, the 2nd third drops the sweetness but otherwise continues the same flavor profile while adding a bit of strength to the mix. At the band point 1 hour in with a couple inches left I stopped smoking, as the strength was up to full making me light headed, sweaty and very nauseous, I can’t take full strength cigars.
