The draw was a bit tighter than I prefer, but didn’t cause any issues with the smoking experience.
The Particulares Deliciosos overall was fairly average. In the first third, once, the black pepper joined, it seemed a bit too aggressive compared to the rest of the profile. As the cigar progressed and the pepper faded away, it was fairly linear as it was slightly charred oak and mustiness. The strength was also a bit up there. Having smoked the No. 1 vitola previously, I felt like that cigar was a bit better balanced. I don’t really see myself coming back to this one and will revisit the No. 1 vitola instead.
