Once you get past all of the superfluous packaging you find a nice dark tightly wrapped cigar that has a pleasant cedar, leather smell. The foot has a noticeably different smell dominated by the sweet black licorice (anise) and fresh coffee grounds.
Not sure why but I was anticipating more pepper and spice with this stick which was why I was passively avoiding it in my humidor, but thankfully this is a very smooth smoking cigar with only hints of pepper that come and go throughout.
The draw was a little tight which required a double draw to get enough smoke for me. Burn was kind of wonky and needed a couple touch-ups, at one point it almost canoed but self corrected, thankfully.
Flavor: this one stays true to its prelight, leather, cedar, coffee with sweet anise undertone which at one point reminded me of Pepsi cola. The retrohale was more pronounced sweetness and almondy than the taste with no annoying sting. The medium-full body was a bit heavier than I typically choose for a morning coffee smoke but nice. I could definitely tell that it was stronger than most morning smokes too...glad I didn’t have an appointment this morning! 🤪
All in all a fine smoke, quite enjoyable and one that I’m sure will find its way back into my rotation.
