Tabak Especial Belicoso Dulce Cigar Review
This 5×52 stick features a medium tan wrapper with a very light but firm pack, minimal veins, tight seams, smooth feel and pungent artificially sweet aroma like a mix of cocoa mix and jolly rancher. First light reveals a perfect draw with tons of rich smoke output however flavors are completely masked by the super sugary sweet tip. The first third burns perfectly with the same sweetness on the draw, bringing a bit of a wood to the finish but still quite masked by the sweetened tip. The ash falls cleanly at the 1/2 way point 30 minutes in, where flavors have changed slightly. The draw sweetness is winding down to a normal level with the finish bringing a slight coffee and pepper leaving a parched mouthfeel. Ending at 1 hour where the nub hot hot and mushy the last third showed no further changes.
