Felix Assouline Ringo Colt Cigar Review
This 6.5×38 stick features a dark chocolate red hued buttery soft satin wrapper with slight mottling, minimal veins, tight invisible seams, triple cap and rich fruity musty barnyard aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw with medium bodied thick smoke output showing smooth musty tobacco on the draw followed by an oily pepper spice and earth blend through the finish. The first third kicks the body up to medium-full, adding a slightly creamy coffee to the finish which is also much longer. The construction is excellent, burning quickly but evenly. Hitting the 1/2 way point 35 minutes in, the ash falls off in another solid chunk while flavors remain the same but strength starts creeping in. 50 minutes in by the band point, the spice and pepper are just about gone completely leaving a zesty coffee through the finish and the draw gets some of the creamy textured deep coffee notes. Ending at 1:10 the last bit dropped body down to medium and ramped up strength to match! Thank you very much to Felix Assouline Cigars for sending this in for review!
