The draw was perfect, striking the ideal balance between air flow and resistance.
With a name like Wasabi with a candela wrapper, it is an oxymoron. My expectations pre-light was a spicy candela flavored offering. Given my expectations, the spice delivery was met in spades, although I’m not too sure if I would call it a wasabi/horseradish delivery. Instead, it was more white pepper driven. What’s interesting is, I rarely tasted conventional candela flavors (vegetal, grassy). When the wrapper was burning consistently, a nice sweet hay came through, which helped the spice and earthiness of the cigar. Overall, if you are a fan of bigger spice in a candela cigar, this is no doubt for you.
