The cigar begins with a bitter note, but not one that’s unpleasant. More like taking a bite out of really bitter chocolate, one with 90 percent cocoa. That slight bitterness continues at the end of the draw down to the first one third of the cigar, accompanied by the flavour of wet wood. It matures half way down, with the bitterness gone. The wet wood changes to dry wood shavings which then continues all the way to the end. In the last inch it’s joined by a light floral note, with a hint of sweet spice, but it’s faint and you’ll notice it on the finish. Not a very complex cigar, with an almost one dimensional flavour profile. Lasting about an hour, you’ll want to pair this a double espresso.
