I paired a glass of water with this review for a clean palate. This is my first review, so I wanted to make sure I didn't miss any flavors!
Pre Light - Nice brown wrapper, smells of grass, hay, and barnyard. Cut the tip and the spicy draw is effortless.
1st Third - Dry, mild, long lasting spicy on the back of the tongue. Very flaky ash, creamy thick smoke. A very light sweet taste washes over my tongue, but dissipates as quickly as it appears. Razor sharp burn. About 20 minutes in the spice drops off and is replaced by a nice leather taste.
2nd Third - Ash hangs on for about 1" then falls. At the beginning of the 2/3 a very strong hay/barnyard flavor takes over. Spice is slowly coming back, stronger at each draw.
Final Third - Flavor change - Nutmeg/Leather with no spice. Still mild with hints of nicotine.
Overall - I enjoyed this cigar. The aroma throughout the entire smoke was fantastic! I had ZERO burn issues and the draw stayed perfect the entire smoke. I would assume this cigar would cost around $8.99 at my local B&M.
This is where I ended my smoke, with a total time of 1 hour and 40 minutes.
