This is my first review so hopefully they will get better with time...
Size: 4 1/2 x 44
Country of Origin: Nicaragua
Wrapper Color: Maduro
Wrapper: Connecticut Broadleaf
Binder: Brazilian Mata Fina
Vitola: Petit Corona
Summary: I have had a papas fritas every morning for the last couple of weeks so I am sort of partial to
Construction: Oily dark wrapper with some tooth not smooth minimal veins and tight seams, but you can see a flaw in the seams in the picture below. cap is uneven
but well done.
Flavor: woody pepper ( licorice almost ) on retro-hale, smooth, woody/licorice sweetness leather, undertones of chocolate coffee.
Burn: sharp cool good
Aroma: unique not something you smell often sweet leather tobacco smell
Finish: Not much clean
Flavor: Cinnamon/pepper licorice/woody on retro-hale little bit of a burn, chocolate coco little bit of spice
the leather is always there it is a bit sharp, could probably use some rest.
Burn: sharp cool
Finish: Getting a bit of the pepper/cinnamon licorice/woody oil on the tongue finish is lengthening
Flavor: licorice/cognac/woody some say woody but for me it gets to be almost a licorice and sharpens sometimes to a cognac.
still has sweet taste, leather and spice is always there. coco coffee undertones it is picking up
the nicotine is picking up picking up some chocolate on certain puff's you pick up sometimes the coco, coffee etc on certain puffs.
Burn: sharp cool
Finish: Finish seems to have cleaned up a bit not very long but still getting a pepper licorice/woody oil on the tongue.
Conclusion: I would say this is medium strength for nicotine flavor would be medium to full
good smoke production excellent draw.. I rate these cigars even as seconds highly even by
long filler standards. Papas Fritas is in my normal rotation and I give a hats off to the
blenders and those who have helped create this special cigar that sets the bar that every short filler wants to be.
