This cigar was enjoyed with Water

Pre-Light: 9 Points of 10 Possible

The cigar is a matted dull rich brown wrapper. You can see the roll lines around the cigar, not very many veins and a little bit of blotching. The cigar was nicely packed, slightly soft but not mushy nor very hard.

Lighting and Burn: 14 Points of 15 Possible

This cigar lit up nicely and the burn was slightly wavy at times, but no touch up were required. The ash was somewhat stacked but loose, and dropped at about the 3/4 inch point. This cigar required no relights.

Construction: 26 Points of 30 Possible

The draw on this cigar was flawless, and produced a nice volume of smoke. The cigar was a pyramid shaped, and cut nicely, with no cracking or splitting. It was a Cuban box press and you could see the roll seams around the cigar.    

Flavor and Aroma: 40 Points of 45 Possible

The opening of this cigar had a nice dry rich earthiness to it, with a bit of woodiness. The smoke had a slight heaviness and was a bit oily. Moving into the second third the cigar picked up a little with  a nice coffee and nuttiness flavor came in and the earthiness and wood toned downed. The lasted third was pretty much the same as the first and second thirds but a touch of leather joined in the mix. The cigar was mild to medium in flavor and strength.  


Overall I found this cigar to be very pleasant. The complexity of the cigar was good but I think there could be more. My first guess would be the 1964 Anniversary Belicoso Maduro, however the complexity is not quite there. the other would be maybe an EP Carrillo. I want to thank Apollo for the chance to smoke this cigar. I would really like to know what the cigar is, as I would make this almost a daily smoke.
