The dry brown wrapper leaf has only a few small veins.
It is quite firm felling and heavy for a robusto. Draw is a bit tight after being cut.
Very pungent earthy smell. It may just be placebo, but it smells organic 😉 This cigar has my interest. The banding and cedar is attractive, the construction is decent, and it is a good looking/smelling cigar.
The mild/medium bodied first third produced a lot of dry, toasty, and creamy smoke with a slightly peppery finish. The white ash is holding on tight and the burn is very even. The draw really opened up once it got burning.
The first ash did not drop off until the halfway point. The smoke is still dry and it has a toasty and cedary without much of a finish. This third was a bit bland, but the construction has been perfect so far.
Not much change in the final third. Dry, toasty, and earthy smoke with a lack of a finish. Very 1 dimensional cigar without any complexities. The white ash only dropped once during the whole smoke.
Smoking and eating organic things makes me feel comfortable. I like to know where the things I ingested came from, and being certified organic helps. The price of this cigar is reasonable, so I feel even more comfortable with it. The cigar tastes good and has a pleasant, smooth flavor profile, but it is very one dimensional and will leave some people wanting more. The flawless construction really picks up some of the slack in the flavor category. It would make a good reliable outdoor smoke for lovers of mild and medium bodied cigars.
