The draw on the other hand was flawless.
I would call this a smooth, but at the same time, semi-rustic cigar. The flavors in themselves (naturally sweet roasted nuts, leather, cedar, hint of baking spice) are more rustic style of flavors, but it’s smooth because the flavors were in good balance with no one flavor dominating another. It was a good mix of utilizing the filler tobaccos and pairing with a quality wrapper to achieve the balance. Although I would smoke the El Artista The Slugger by Big Papi again, I am curious what the cigar would taste like with greater wrapper influence and less filler influence. If I’m in for 2 to 3 hours of smoking, I’d do it again. But for mouthfeel, can we move out of the parejo head and give it a tapered head?
