I love it when you light up a cigar that is new to you, and it immediately grabs your full attention – “wow, that’s really different, really interesting and really tasty”
That’s what this cigar was. I’ve had only one other des Dieux, and it was from this box, although I didn’t let it rest nearly long enough after receiving from FOH auctions, a while back, and was not overly impressed with it.
This one was a different story.
-Opens with exotic woods, cream, clove
Very smooth and effortless to retro. Getting a flash of marshmallow cream, then clove cream. Every few puffs, you get a slightly different angle/taste. Some transitions also into soft leather and cream.
Towards the end, more woody notes come forward. Excellent aroma.
Such an excellent complex and interesting cigar!
