The draw was fairly snug, even with a second cut and using a draw tool. This likely led to things heating up in the final third.
I enjoy a bit of mustiness in flavor profiles, but in this blend it was a bit too much. The first third started well, but the mustiness took over in the second third and drowned out some of the other flavors. Construction was a bit of a struggle for this cigar, so I’d like to revisit it to see how the flavor profile responds to a better draw and burn. Not my favorite from the Cornelius & Anthony portfolio, but for those that like more strength and some darker flavors, it might be right in their wheelhouse. It’s definitely worth picking one up to see how your experience is.
