First few draws shows a well balanced mixture of black pepper, spicy wood and medium bodied sweet cream (as a matter of fact, makes me think of a good cappuccino crema). Roughly a quarter inch in, a touch of bitter wood and dry biscuit enters into the profile. I’m pleasantly surprised by the higher level of body in this cigar (something the vast majority of Connecticut shades do not have). Through the nose, intensified black pepper and medium bodied sweet cream. The finish is long and lingering with balanced black pepper, dry oak and slight creamy bread. In regards to body and strength, medium.
