Hamlet 25th Year Master of Tobacco Robusto

This is the second blend from Hamlet Parades since he joined the Rocky Patel family. It has a smooth medium wrapper with a nice firm bunch. The wrapper and foot have light nutty aromas. The cold draw is perfect. Today's beverage is a Karbach Love Street Kolsch, brewed in Houston.



Initial notes are well aged tobacco and walnut with a hint of white pepper in the retrohale. The burn is mostly even with a light ash that looks fairly firm. Very pleasant with the slight bite of the kolsch. The ash dropped at 3/4 of an inch, but was solid. If Hamlet's Tabaquero was not to your liking you should still give this blend a try. It is very smooth and flavorful.



The first third showcases the medium flavors of walnut, tobacco and cedar with the light white pepper notes. The burn continues to be even and the ash remains solid with no flakes.



Nearing the second third the walnut notes are subdued while the cedar and tobacco notes increase. Still a good complexity with the white pepper notes. The burn continues to be even.



Approaching the final inch coffee notes have appeared, adding to the complexity of the blend. This is a very well constructed cigar, with an even burn throughout. 9/10, Joe Bob says check it out.
