Paul Garmirian Symphony 20 Connoisseur Cigar Review

This 6×52 stick features a dark brown smooth oily wrapper with a firm dense pack, minimal veins, tight invisible seams, double cap and rich dark chocolate and tobacco aroma. First light reveals a great draw with minimal smoke output, medium bodied flavors of a slightly sweet smooth leather and earth with a short clean finish giving a bit of a zing. The first third burns very slowly, dropping the bit of leather and going to a much deeper earth on the draw while the finish grows long. Hitting the midway point about 35 minutes in, the earth dies down while the creamy leather returns, with the finish getting softer and shorter. Ending at 1:30 the last third returns to a very slow burn, needing a couple small touchups, with the body going up to medium-full and the strength coming up to medium. Flavors shift back to a very deep slightly sweet earth, with a long lingering finish that goes down into your chest. Thank you very much to Sean Corder for sending this sample in!
