That said, These cigars are firm cylinders with a sexy broadleaf wrapper. I'm smoking outside these days and it's in the low 30s. I decided to saunter through the woods with my dog and smoke this cigar. I was using small wooden matches and had a hard time getting it lit. The foot was maybe 2/3 lit and I puffed manfully. It evened out and It gave me a nice straight burn with a tight ash. I am finding that these days cigar construction is really important to me. I'd rather have a well made Nicaraguan that burns well than a Cuban that burns badly and gets mushy.
It took a bit for the flavor to open up, but it did and I was reminded of the Sobremesa I smoked a while back. It has a similar perfumy sweetness. I was enjoying this cigar.
At 2/3 in I hit a knot or something and the draw tightened and the cigar was trying to go out. I kept puffing expecting it to get bitter. But it never did. The conditions were less than optimal, so to be fair I want to give this cigar another chance. I'll do a proper review of this cigar after the other 4 have sat in my humidor for a while. I think the next one will probably be a lot better.
Excellent work.
