3/3 – leather, creamy, spice picked back up in retrohale
Final Thoughts –
This cigar was a little too nondescript for me. There was not much going on flavor-wise, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. If you like leather in your cigars and a straightforward, consistent flavor profile this would be right up your alley. The construction and performance of this cigar was absolutely perfect and that alone can make a nondescript cigar enjoyable.
Body – Medium
Strength – None, which his how I like it.
Complexity – Not very complex, pretty much straight leather throughout.
Session or golf – Could be both a session or golf cigar although it’s a bit short for golf. I like to have 2, 2-hour cigars when I play golf.
Smoke again – Yes, but I’d have to be in the right mood and it’d have to be after not having smoked it in awhile.
