At first glance, the Small Batch No. 4’s dark wrapper stands out. A few minor veins are visible, but I detect no major imperfections. The wrapper has plenty of oil and carries a smooth texture that feels nice on my fingers. A nice red and gold band sits near the head. It denotes the Litto Gomez name and logo. Beyond the decoration, the sheer size of the cigar is also worth mentioning. Construction is solid overall. The Small Batch No. 4 has a little give to it when pressed, but no real soft spots. It has a pre-light aroma that is spicy. The cold taste reminds me of coffee.

After lighting, the Litto Gomez Small Batch No. 4 burns like a quality cigar should. The burn is slow and produces plenty of thick smoke. The draw is perfect. No touch-ups are needed. Zero re-lighting is necessary. The ash is solid and has a nice light color.

The flavor of the Small Batch No. 4 can be described as complex and entertaining. There’s also plenty of power, so this is not a cigar for beginners. The first third begins with a kick of pepper that combines with wood, earth, and leather. At this point, I feel as if I am in for a strong ride. The second third continues with the pepper, but it dies down a bit in strength. I also detect a pleasant mix of cinnamon, nuts, and coffee. The final third winds things down with wood and more pepper. This is definitely a cigar that is full-bodied from head to toe.

If you are looking for a cigar with full flavor and full-bodied strength, the Litto Gomez Small Batch No.4 should be just what the doctor ordered. This is a strong cigar all the way, and you better like spiciness because that seems to be its dominant theme. A single sells for around $18, and it also comes in cases of 105. Yes, it is expensive and too much for an everyday smoke, but if you have a special event in mind, pick one up. Remember to eat a full dinner beforehand, as its strength is nothing to play around with.

The Litto Gomez Small Batch No. 4 earns a rating of 3.75 out of four stars.
