    Grimalkin by Emilio Review

    This cigar has been staring at me from the humidor (literally, check out the band!) and begging to be smoked. I finally gave in.



    Initial Impressions:
    - very nice dark brown wrapper that glistens with oils
    - body smells of sweet aged tobacco
    - foot gives off a mouth watering aroma of brown sugar and baked bread
    - cold draw reveals flavors of caramel and roasted sugar (my mouth was watering before I even toasted the foot!)

    1st Third
    - first puffs taste of rich sweet tobacco and baking spices
    - toasted caramel and a touch of coffee bean dominate the first inch or so
    - a nice spice picks up around the 2 inch mark


    2nd Third
    - sweetness shifts to the background and is replaced by a spicy core of cinnamon, espresso, and a touch of pepper
    - the retrohale is all cedar with a touch of cream, nice


    Conclusion
    - the sweet roasted sugar flavor comes back in the last third
    - there is a hint of black pepper on the tongue on the exhale



    I really enjoyed the flavor profile of this smoke. I highly recommend them. I've smoked about 6 of these and they were all excellent. They are a little hard to find but worth the effort. I give the Grimalkin a 93 IMHO.

    Another great review, and of a cigar definitely worthy of any praise that's heaped on it. The 10 or so Grimalkins that I've smoked have all been knockouts.
    Never trust anyone over 30.

    Nice job Pete, I gotta take some time out to ride down and see Gary and stock up on some of his great sticks!
