First thirds main flavor is what I tend to expect from Brazilian Mata Fina. That is, spades of creamy sweetness. What I don’t tend to expect from a typical Brazilian Mata Fina are surrounding notes. In the Associate, notes of bread, milk chocolate, nuts, faint black pepper and minerals. Roughly an inch into the cigar, a faint wood enters the palate as well. Through the nose, elevated (and preferred) level of black pepper. In addition, baking spices and light oak. The finish lingers with faint wood, tongue layering black pepper and faint bread. Body is somewhere in between medium and medium full while strength is at a solid medium.
