The draw was slightly tighter than I prefer, but didn’t cause any issues with the smoking experience.
The cigar began with wood, creaminess and a mild baking spice. Halfway through the third, the baking spice morphed to black pepper. The second third saw the creaminess morph into mustiness and some char joined the profile. The final third saw the black pepper drop out and some earthiness join the profile. The construction was pretty good aside from a touch-up and strength was slightly above medium most of the way. The Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust Muestra de Saka Unstolen Valor had a nice start, but once the creaminess shifted to mustiness and some char joined in, it knocked things down to average and maintained that level the rest of the way. It was interesting to smoke a Raul Disla blended offering, but it was just a fairly average experience. I wish the profile from the first third could have held on longer. With the price point and the experience, I don’t really see myself chasing down more of these.
