Southern Draw Firethorn Pome Lancero

Wonderful smelling if somewhat rustic wrapper with a nice firm bunch. Closed foot. And as always a perfect draw. Coffee/cocoa notes before lighting. Tonight’s beverage is a Stone Xocoveza Stout.



Medium bodied smoke with an even burn and a light grey ash that looks fairly solid. There is a bit of cinnamon on the lips to complement leather and coffee notes, with a light dusting of white pepper in the retrohale.



At 1/3 the burn is a bit uneven but the ash is still solid. The flavors are blending nicely with some spices adding to the leather and coffee. An excellent cigar that is delivering on all levels. The beer is also blending nicely with the flavors. The almost two inch ash fell only when I moved the bands up to avoid burning them.



At two thirds the cinnamon notes have been replaced by more mellow nutmeg to go with the other flavors. A bit of black pepper has appeared in the retrohale. The burn has evened itself and the ash continues to be solid.



Approaching the final inch the smoke remains complex. This is a very well constructed cigar. This one earns 9/10. Joe Bob says check it out.
