This cigar was enjoyed with black coffee

Pre-Light: 17 Points of 10 Possible

The look of this cigar can simply be summed up as very dark and very fat. It was surprisingly solid, almost rock hard. At first I thought it might have been too dry, but there were no signs of this other than it's hardness. When I took a pre-light draw i got a sweet chocolate flavor and aroma.

Lighting and Burn: 11 Points of 15 Possible

It lit quickly and easily. It had a nice light gray ash that held on for about an inch and a half. The burn line was fairly even most of the smoke. It needed a bit of assistance a couple of times though.  

Construction: 1 Points of 30 Possible

I was puffing away at the cigar, and taking notes when my wife asked me "whats on your mouth?". I thought to myself "no, it couldn't be" she then tells me it looks like I've got chocolate all over my face. So I looked in a mirror and I had what looked like shoe polish all over my lips and teeth. I then wet my fingers and wiped them across the cigar and some sort of dye rubbed off onto my hand. Now to be perfectly honest I can't think of any good excuse to dye a cigar, nor can I think of any good excuse to give a dyed cigar more than one point for construction.    

Flavor and Aroma: 24 Points of 45 Possible

First third: It opened with a good deal of pepper, sweet chocolate, and cedar.

Second third: As it approached the halfway point it got a bit fuller and very faint notes of oak and cinnamon joined the mix.

Final third: The flavors in the final third remained the same as they were in the second.


I will never buy this cigar. I really think it is a shady practice to dye a wrapper to make it look darker. And if you are going to dye it at least make it so it doesn't wipe of on the customer's hands, face, and clothing.
