The draw was perfect, with just the right amount of resistance that I prefer.
The initial draws of the cigar were very nice as the candied cinnamon was something I really enjoyed, but departed quickly and became a fairly average profile of wood, mustiness and the black pepper. That profile maintained itself with an added toasted note and later dry earth and wood bitterness. Initially when planning to review this cigar, the Fonseca by My Father Cosacos was the one I was the most interested in, but in smoking this and the Cedros, I found the Cedros to perform better. I don’t see myself coming back to this vitola, but might be interested in checking out others to see if they perform more like the Cedros or if there is an even better vitola in the line.
