Age: 3 years
Purchased at: Was gifted by a fellow BOTL
Smoking Location- Ghetto Smoke Shack
Cut Method- Dual Blade
Pre-Smoke & Construction:
The wrapper was a little rough looking, with medium veins that were almost black in color. The wrapper had a sweet, almost chocolate like flavor and cedar/woody at the foot. The pre-light draw was decent and filled my mouth with the same taste as I smelled. Squeezing the cigar was med in tension and bumpy.
After the light:
Method- Cedar Match (3)
Lit nice and even, producing a thin but flavorful smoke of tobacco with a hint of spice but not to bad. As it smoked down the flavor changed to semi sweet, almost like a dark chocolate and falls in the medium body range. Very impressed with the first 1/3 of this stick.
Ash length- 1.5 inches
Last half of cigar was basically the same, the sweetness was a little more prominent and spices seemed to come and go, the smoke turned nice and rich and creamy and higher in volume. I can not complain about this stick at all really, I wish it had a little more complex. I also with I would have taken more pictures, I will admit I was engulfed in the cigar even though its not very complex.
Box Worthy? Hell yes, this could very well turn into an every day smoke, its a great price point at 3-4 bucks a stick on average.
