Tabacalera El Artista Exactus Super Coloso Cigar Review

This 90×11.5 (yes you read that right) log features a dark tan, oily buttery smooth firm wrapper with small veins, tight invisible seams, a couple patches, triple cap and soapy cedar aroma. First light reveals a surprisingly normal draw, though requiring several puffs just to move enough volume of air back to get any smoke in the mouth. Flavors are a sweet mild wood with a bit of peppermint like finish notes. Smoke absolutely pours off the foot! 20 minutes in about 1 inch down, body is up to a mild-medium, it only takes two puffs for smoke and a bit of saltiness comes on the end of the oily finish. Over an hour in still in the first third, flavors are very much the same just dropping the peppermint. Construction is shockingly normal just needing occasional side touchups. Passing the 1/2 way point about 2:15 in, no changes. 3.5 hours in everything is still burning well, just requiring small touchups to one side. The peppermint is back strong on the finish, still no strength luckily. Ending it down with an inch remaining at 4.5 HOURS in, the last 30 minutes let it finally puff fairly normally with one long draw, body is up to medium with better smoke output and a combo of a minty nut takes over the draw and finish. Thank you to Tabacalera El Artista Cigars for providing this sample for review!
