The first third showed terrific potential but sadly transitioned into a mediocre remaining profile. I was hoping the first third's mixture of spice, heat, cream and earth to build in greater intensities but it was the reversal of that.
I find the junior release of the Matilde Quadrata to be their strongest cigar thus far. But true to Matilde's form, it does not compromise full flavors. I enjoyed the interplay of the heated spice paired with sweetness, breadiness and minerality.
