Review Notes: A very tasty cigar. This 6 3/8" x 40 lonsdale with box code HKU OCT03 comes enrobed in a brown wrapper with a reddish-hue and minimal veins. A triple cap and barnyard aroma belie its Cuban origins. Excellent construction without soft spots. Easy light. Smooth draw. Even burn without the need for relights or corrections. Gray-black flaky ash. White smoke. It started with spice, white pepper, and wood. The first third brought both woody and woodsy notes with pepper, leather, and cocoa, as well as a fleeting hint of lemon zest. The tannic quality suggested this was a fairly recent production. The middle third brought mild earth and cream on a backdrop of wood, with notes of toasted tobacco and a slight floral quality. The last third saw a continuance of the woody core with sweet leather and a mild tangy flavor. All in all, this medium-to-full bodied 1 hour 20 minute smoke was enjoyable. Paired with rum.
