Aging Room M-356 Presto Cigar Review
This 4.5×48 stick features dark brown slightly toothy oily soft wrapper with small veins, tight seams, double cap and rich chocolate and wood aroma. First light reveals a loose draw with good but thin smoke output showing full bodied flavors of a smooth tobacco, big pepper and spice with a light earth followed by a peppery zingy finish. The first third proves quite complex and full of flavor, still full bodied with thick rich smooth smoke output, a razor sharp burnline and the ash falls in an inch chunk. Draw flavors are a slight sweetness, cream, a fleeting steak note just before the finish with peppery zingy earth powering through till the next draw. 30 minutes in ending the 2nd third flavors go to a very smooth and creamy earth on the draw while the finish gets a little shorter, thicker, drops the pepper but bring in an oily spice left of the lips. Strength slowly gets up to a medium, giving me a good buzz. Ending at 45 minutes the last bit showed no further transitions. Thank you very much to Chris Glenn for sending this in for review!
