Yes, I know I should let these age a bit more, but they're just so tasty I couldn't pass it up for this review weekend.
Beautiful wrapper, well constructed. Cold draw had a touch of sweetness to it.
From the start it had a perfect draw, in the first third I tasted a bit of honey leading into a grassy taste. Silky smooth, the flavors mingle together without any one overpowering the other.
Second third a bit fuller with some oaky notes, a leathery taste starts to build up. Burn still perfect with no corrections needed. Final third stayed on the medium side of medium-full, with more oak and leather in the mix. The honey taste is mostly gone at this point.
This has been my favorite Cuban on my admittedly still short list of cigars. I know I need to let these sit, but it's going to be hard not lighting up another for 6 months.
Overall the adjective that comes first in my mind about this cigar is smooth. Never once felt overwhelmed by it, an incredibly pleasant way to spend 90 minutes or so on a Sunday afternoon.
