GRAN HABANO 20TH ANNIVERSARY

This cigar has a smooth Corojo wrapper. There are mainly vegetal notes from the foot. The cold draw is perfect.



Initial flavors are oak forward with a slight sweetness. The ash is fairly fragile but the burn is even.



In the first third the flavor profile remains mostly oak, but the light sweetness increases. This is a good medium bodied smoke. The smoke is thick and flavorful. The retrohale is smooth. The ash drops when I set it down, but in chunks so it is still pretty solid. The burn is still even.



During the second third the flavor profile picks up a bit of spice that reminds me of cinnamon with some mint and black pepper in the mix. The ash is still solid but chunky, and the burn remains very even.



Approaching the final inch, the complexity has settled in very well. Although medium bodied, it is very rich. The ash continues to drop when I put the cigar down. The burn remains even.

Overall a very good medium bodied smoke. The complexity is very good and the burn remains very even. 9.3/10, Joe Bob says check it out.
