Mombacho Tierra Volcan Clasico

Beautiful Habano wrapper with two prominent veins and a nice firm bunch. Fragrant wrapper and shaggy foot with hints of coffee and some savory spices. The cold draw is perfect.



Initial flavors are mostly wrapper from the shaggy foot and are very smooth. IPAs match up very well with Habano wrapper and this one is no exception. Getting into the body of the cigar I am picking up coffee and nutmeg notes with a bit of cedar. There is also a light white pepper note in the retrohale. The burn is mostly even; the ash hit my lap at about 1/2 inch.

After the first third the cigar is producing plentiful smoke that is very pleasant. Smooth and cool, the nutmeg and cedar are joined by a hint of leather. The citrus notes of the IPA are blending in perfectly.



Approaching two thirds, the smoke remains cool and pleasant with a nice clean finish. The burn continues to be even and the complexity is impressive. A nice medium-bodied blend of flavors.



I have to thank Gary "Doc" Laden of Smooth Draws Radio for letting us know about Mombacho's press night. It was a very nice dinner party at a mansion west of the Strip in Las Vegas, and by a bit of synchronicity, our Lyft was a Tesla with gull-wing doors that allowed us to make quite an entrance.

I have to stress the quality of construction of this cigar. It is smoking very slowly with plentiful smoke so it's staying cool and smooth. I think I have found another cigar that belongs in my rotation.



Approaching the final inch of the cigar, I get a very pleasant surprise of cocoa nibs notes. This cigar goes into the "must try" category and earns a 9.25/10. Joe Bob says check it out.
