The draw was perfect with just the right amount of resistance that I prefer.
The cigar began with wood, cinnamon and cream and shortly thereafter the cinnamon was an aggressive baking spice that quickly mellowed. The cream then transitioned to mustiness as some dry earth joined the profile. Some char and bitterness joined in the final third. The Trinidad Espiritu Series No. 1 Toro started out fairly well, but by the middle of the first third became fairly average. Some sweetness would have really rounded out the profile, but there was none to be found. I could see this cigar appealing to the masses as it ticks a few boxes, but for me the cigar needs something more. It would work well in a pairing, but on it’s own, it’s not something I’d likely return to.
