Wrapper: Habano grown in the San Andres Valley
Filler: Cuban Seed, Long Leaf Ligeros from Nicaragua
This is one hell of a cigar. This thing is a 6” x 60 monster. The wrapper was very sweet smelling and sweet tasting but lacked in construction. It had a few cracks and splits in it, but never peeled or flaked off. The smell of this cigar reminded me of cedar right from the start.
Once I lit up this behemoth, the flavors came out immediately. I was hit in the mouth with strong cedar flavors as soon as I toasted the foot. Every puff became sweeter and sweeter. Once I got about a dozen puffs in, the flavor became a little more earthy and peppery. The pepper hints weren’t too strong, but they were there. Towards about the end of the first third, the flavor started getting a bit nutty. But the cedar overwhelmed every other flavor.
