Bahia Matanzas Perfecto No.3 Cigar Review
This 6.2×54 perfecto shaped stick features a dark brown softly packed very glossy oily slick wrapper with small veins, tight seams and a pungent chocolate and hay aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw with mild-medium bodied smoke showing very smooth oily creamy textures notes of chocolate and coffee with a long smooth finish. The first third burns very well bringing the body to a medium as it opens up to the widest section. Flavors drop most of the chocolate sticking with a smooth oily coffee with a mellow finish. The 1/2 way point comes at 35 minutes bringing the body up a notch to medium-full keeping the same profile with very rich slightly sweet coffee notes and a slight earthiness, followed by the same on a very full long finish. Ending a little early at 55 minutes with a couple inches left, flavors remained the same but the draw snugged up, the smoke got very hot and tarballs appeared. An occasional byproduct of shaped head cigars. Thank you very much to viewer Arthur Cairo for sending this in for review, I greatly appreciate it!
