The Crowned Heads Las Calaveras Edición Limitada 2017 shows a heavier spice and grittier profile. I'll be interested to see how this cigar does with further age, as I don't think it is quite prime time yet.
I find the Debonaire Daybreak Robusto to be a clean and nuanced flavor delivery. The notes although not overly complex, worked well together, giving an overall mild-medium body and strength, easy going flavor profile.
The Ventura Hugo Chairman Robusto, in my opinion, was a sweet dessert. The sweetened milk chocolate note was upfront and dominant the vast majority of the time until the last third where much needed spice and minerals was available. Overall, a unique and interesting bundle of flavors.
Cornelius & Anthony really has something special going on with their proprietary U.S. binder. The combination of this binder and utilization of La Zona sourced tobaccos brings an added layer of punch that is both unique and tasty in this Señor Esugars. This is definitely one to try especially if you enjoy heavy spice and earth cigars.
The Casa Fernandez Condega Corojo Serie S Robusto shows a familiar TABSA style being rich in flavors. But the spike in white pepper spice is at times overbearing, and throws off balance and refinement. I liked the cigar but am more interested to see what further age will do.
My overall impression of the Muestra de Saka Nacatamale is that it is a familiar Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust flavor profile centered around deep spice and earthiness with nothing short of amazing construction.
The Serino Wayfarer Corona Gorda was first and foremost all about flavor with strength as a second thought. Although tasty, the balance was thrown off at times such that it was too mineral forward, taking away from the other nuances and complexities. Nonetheless, this is a great new addition to Serino's portfolio and well worth checking out.
I find it great that a little 4 x 44 petite cigar, like this Saga Short Tales Tomo IV L.O.V., can have so many flavors. It's a shame there aren't many petite cigars in the market place, let alone ones that have this much flavor. Take it slow with this cigar and you'll be rewarded with a great, short and flavored experience.
The Smoking Jacket Henkie was a pleasure to smoke through and through. I loved how the flavors were so full, especially in sweetness, earth and just the right amount of balanced spice. Don't sleep on this one.
