Filler: Dominican and Nicaraguan
Vitola: Robusto, 5×50
Appearance & Smell
It smells of nuts and cream. A slight hint of hay is also detectable. The color is a nice creamy colored Connecticut. The seams are noticeable but it doesn’t take away anything from the overall look. The two bands are simple but look good.
I cut this cigar using a Xikar Xi1 to put a flat cut on the cap. I then used a Xikar Enigma double torch to light the cigar evenly.
Burn & Draw
The draw was very easy. Almost too easy! But it did provide some really nice clouds of smoke. The burn was pretty even throughout the whole smoke. If the burn got uneven, it would even itself out without me having to touch it up.
Strength & Body
The is definitely a mild cigar when it comes to strength. It started to push a little towards medium at the end, so I suspect that the toro and larger sizes will have a tiny bit more strength. The body was very nice. The nuttiness from the original smell was definitely there, hay, cedar, and earthiness all made appearances throughout.
If you are a person who enjoys a cigar in the morning from time to time, then this is a cigar for you! I can definitely imagine myself smoking this in the morning with a nice cup of coffee. If you enjoy milder cigars in general or on the gold course, this would also be a great cigar for you. It’s a tasty smoke and it’s not expensive.
