"Cigar wizardry"

Review Notes: Nice chocolate brown Cameroon wrapper with a few small veins and very minor tooth. The cigar sported a stately black and gold band, large in size with attractive embossing. Well applied cap clipped cleanly with no tearing. Constructed with a firm roll and exhibited an excellent pre-light draw. Lit easily and burned straight and even throughout. Medium bodied with a slightly nutty overtone, the flavor was pleasant with a small amount of spiciness. A large amount of mouth filling smoke billowed dense and white and filled the room with rich tobacco scent. The cigar drew perfectly, not too hard or easy, and the ash was firm and well behaved all the way to the band. Accompanied with a Cappuccino, the Merlin was a fine complement to the cinnamon and rich cream. The finish was measured and pleasant with a slight lingering bite. Appropriate for mid day to evening, the cigar would hold its own with all but the most spicy and heavy foods. Overall this was an excellent cigar that embodied the Excalibur lineís consistency and quality while adding an additional dimension of depth and flavor. Recommended.
