The draw had just the right amount of resistance that I prefer.
This is a little known brand from the Altadis portfolio, so I was interested in seeing what it was about. The first third was very good with an interesting mix of bread notes, pepper and wood. Unfortunately, the second third transitioned to a pretty standard flavor profile. The final third gained some red pepper notes, but it wasn’t enough to really move up beyond an average profile. Construction was perfect which isn’t much of a surprise in regards to where this cigar was rolled. Price doesn’t factor into the score, but it is an attractive one. If other samples could provide the flavor profile from the first third longer through the cigar, then this could be really good. It’s well worth checking out for the price to see if it’s something you might enjoy.
