Welcome to another Member sponsored Geek Critique generously sponsored by our member 05Venturer (Kent). The cigar provided for this round is the All Saints Cigars St. Francis Mitre.

In 2019, Micky Pegg and two friends, Frank Layo and Martin Corboy,founded All Saint Cigars and turned to the Tabacalera Villa Cuba S.A. factory located in Nicaragua to produce the company's cigars.  The St. Francis cigar features an exquisite Ecuadorian Oscuro wrapper over Nicaraguan binder and filler. Packed in 20 count cigar boxes, this medium-full bodied cigar is loaded with flavors and features a pristine burn due to its outstanding construction.

This cigar was enjoyed with Water

Pre-Light: 10 Points of 10 Possible

The cigar presented itself as a stubby torpedo with a nice deep dark rich brown wrapper. Minimal veining, firm along the barrel, with no soft spots. It had somewhat of a oily sheen to it. The aroma along the body was of a sweet barnyard. The aroma at the foot was a sweet grass.

Lighting and Burn: 13 Points of 15 Possible

After cutting the cigar the pre light draw had no restrictions and was a sweet straw flavor. I then toasted up he cigar and the opening draw produced a nice amount of smoke. The cigar burned even, except for a touch up on the start. The ash held for about 1/2 inch and was salt and pepper in color. The cigar did require a couple of re-lights.  

Construction: 27 Points of 30 Possible

The cigar was well constructed, the draw was good. looked to be well rolled with no seam lines, and well brunched at the foot. I liked the stubby looking torpedo shaped head on this cigar, which made cutting the cap which gave it more surface area then a regular torpedo.  

Flavor and Aroma: 40 Points of 45 Possible

The opening notes of this cigar was of woody oak, a sweet peaty taste, with a bit of nuttiness. As the cigar progressed in the first third the oak taste dissipated to just a woody flavor. The peaty note went to a earthy taste.
 
Going into the second third, the cigar continued with the woodiness, the earthy taste became  more refined and had a heaver richer taste. with a touch of pepper on the back of the throat.

Going into the final third, not much of a change from the second third, however a hint of leather tried to come in but not much.

I found the strength to be medium to full. The burn rate was also good, about an hour and halve to smoke.  

Summary

Overall I really enjoyed this cigar. Although the complexity was not overwhelming it did stay consistent. I really liked the peaty earthiness to this cigar. This is a cigar that I would smoke again and would have a few on hand. I would like to thank Kent for letting in on this review, and as always for keeping use on track.
