Pre-Light: 9 Points of 10 Possible

Decent looking cigar, slight sheen to the natural colored wrapper with only a few small vein lines and a very nice job on the cap. The cannon feels solid from end to end. I get a slight leather aroma from the wrapper but the foot is another story with a sweet chocolate candy sort of essence.

The cap cracked a little when I punched it but only a small one. The draw is good and the prelight flavor is reminiscent of a Tootsie roll.

Lighting and Burn: 13 Points of 15 Possible

The cigar burned slow taking well over a hour and a half to smoke which was surprising for a cigar this size. The ash was solid and a very light grey in color and held well past an inch.

The burn got wavy a couple of times but never needed correction and smoke production was adequate. Would like to have had more smoke but the cigar provided enough to be enjoyable.

Construction: 28 Points of 30 Possible

The wrapper was a nice leaf with a slight oily sheen and just a few minor vein lines. It's what I would call natural in color and the seems are invisible.

The cap is very well done and ties into the wrapper seamlessly. It cracked a little on one side when I used my punch to cut it but nothing serious and it didn't cause any issues during the smoke.

The draw was slightly firm but good and smoke production was good.

Flavor and Aroma: 36 Points of 45 Possible

The initial flavor is a sweet mocha. The room aromatic is like hot chocolate according to the wife. As it progresses I begin to pick up on some of the other notes. Some cream and malt flavor and a nutty hint with just a hint of spice in the retro.

The second third is mostly a continuation of the first but I am detecting tobacco joining the mix. The spice is at a higher level now and there seems to be a little more depth to the profile as the sweetness has let off a bit and the milk chocolate like flavor is mixing well with the coffee and tobacco flavors.

The last third was where things got good for me. The balance between the infused flavors and the flavors of the leaf worked together to make a nice flavor full profile. The chocolate and coffee enhance the walnut note from the tobacco and play well against the wood note in the background.  Peaked at medium strength with spice hitting that sweet spot in the retro in the last third with enough kick in the retro to make you take notice but not enough to make your eyes water.


This is not something I would usually smoke but it's nice to get out of ones comfort zone once in a while so I want to thank Brian for letting me in on this one. Wasn't sure what I was getting into with a infused cigar but this one wasn't bad. I like chocolate and coffee and tobacco and this cigar had a lot of all three of those going on. Not something I would smoke often but definitely something I would smoke again.
