Joya de Nicaragua Antano 1970 Belicoso Cigar Review

This 6×54 stick features a dark chocolate mottled wrapper with a very firm even back, small veins, tight invisible seams, a slightly oily dusty fell and damp chocolate aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw with plentiful medium bodied smoke showing flavors of a smooth creamy textured spicy tobacco with a bit of pepper and grit through the long finish. The first third develops much the same, adding a bit of dark chocolate to the draw and an earthiness through the finish. Performance is excellent with just a straight slow burn. the 1/2 way point comes at 30 minutes also dropping the ash in a solid chunk. I just realized I said it fell in a third on the video…ops. Flavors are still pretty much the same but the earth on the finish is getting deeper and grittier, much more substantial. There is also a fleeting sweetness on the draw and the whole body comes up to a medium-full. Ending out at 1:10 with a little over an inch left where it got too hot for my taste, the last third showed no changes. Thank you again to viewer Tan for sending this in for review!
