Wrapper: Cuban seed maduro from Nicaragua
Size: 4.7 x 56 Figurado
Smoking Location- Ghetto Smoke Shack
Cut Method- Punch
Pre-Smoke & Construction:
The wrapper was a rich and chocolate looking, not many signs of veins, and seemless. The wrapper had a sweet chocolate coffee smell and slightly nutty. The pre-light draw was decent and filled my mouth with a slight spice and again tasting of coffee. Cigar felt hard and tightly rolled, no give to it.
After the light:
Method- 3 flame torch
Lit nice and even, and not a hard draw like I was afraid it was going to give me. Produced a hefty amount of smoke, slight spice and more of a woodsy taste than I would have expected after the pre light scents. However, after a bit the flavor went to a coffee and left a slight dryness in my mouth. The coffee would be the prominent flavor until the last 3rd. Where I then picked up more nutty/chocolate flavor for the rest of the stick.
It started out on the bottom half of a Medium bodied smoke and finished a strong Medium bodied cigar.
Ash length- 1.5 inches
Box Worthy? Hell yes, this is a great stick and is one of my favorites. I really enjoyed this size as well.
