Wonderful cigar… smell of roasted coffee and polished wood… impressing how intensive a 50 yo. cigar can smell… The wrapper looks very smooth and silky, it´s colorado-claro colored.

Firing it up very caryfully with the softflame of the Dupont, clipping the head and takin the first puff… WOW!!

Very intensive and surprisingly strong but on the other hand very smooth while nose-exhaling it… there are notes of white pepper, wood and some leather… a decent sweetness in the background… honey, yeah, it´s honey.

During the second third it´s characterized by those typical flavors which come along with vintage cigars: old, dry paper, some kinda beany flavor… but also old tobacco and from time to time a defined fruityness…

The last third gets more “robust”… wood, pepper and some leathery notes are the ones I can recognize.

During the whole smoke it´s really hard to break the impressions down to defined flavors, it´s such a wonderful and intensive mix which is hard to define and put into words… A fantastic cigar… hard to say if it was better than the Don Candido I smoked for my birthday or not…

The smoking time was exactly two hours before I had to put it to the ashtray… I´m glad that I had this new nub-tool… The whole cigar was picture-perfect: straight burn, stable ash and a perfect draw all the time…
