Perfect draw. Not too tight or loose. Simply perfect.
This is a cigar that smokes well now and will smoke only better with age. It has a great flavor profile that changes throughout and while the flavors are core flavors in the sense that they are always present, it is their dominance which changes and that is always a fun experience. There was a point in the second third where I was wondering what was happening because of the herbal notes, but when that went away in the final third my concerns were addressed. Looking at The Master Selection releases I have smoked, this is one of the top two. I think everyone will have their own favorites, but this is one to check out. The use of the ligero and viso tobacco in the filler blend really brings out a lot of flavors, as does the Mexican binder. In many ways, I would love to see what this cigar would be like with a different wrapper.
