La Galera 1936 Box Pressed Maduro Robusto

This cigar has a toothy dark wrapper with a firm box press. Medium bunch with sweet aromas from the wrapper and foot. The cold draw is perfect. Today’s beverage is a Karbach BBH Imperial Porter.

Initial flavors are sweet cocoa and toasted tobacco. The box press is easy to hold. The burn is mostly even and the ash is a very light grey and solid.

The first third adds cedar notes to the flavor profile. It is excellent. The burn has developed a 45 degree angle, so I will correct.

During the second third the correction definitely worked as the burn is back to even. The complexity of flavors is still excellent. The ash remains solid. This is a full bodied smoke.

This cigar has a short clean finish. The construction and the complexity are very good. The smoke is very smooth to the end. 8.75/10, Joe Bob says check it out.
El Gringo permanence...

Eleven dead bodies. One dead cat. No breasts. Joe Bob says, "Check it out."

More capacious than an elephant's scrotum, and just as difficult to get your hands on...

There is only one thing in life worse than being talked about, and that is not being talked about.
