Another review I read reminded me that I had a few of these tucked away in the old cigar humidor, but this one came from the staff at La Cohoba Magazine. It had a couple of soft spots and veins but nothing too bad with a light tobacco aroma. It had an easy prelight and draw.
Initial draws had a dry feel to the smoke with a very light tobacco flavor. It was slightly bitter on the palate. It also had a woody cedar flavor. It had a Peppery, almost burning nose exhale. The bitterness dissipates fairly quickly and leaves a smooth tobacco flavor on the palate with a slight nutty Earthiness to it.
It had a nice straight burn with an ample draw. It was still light in body at this point with a straight forward tobacco flavor and a mild Coffee Creamy aftertaste.
Really picking up in body. The flavor takes on a caramel aspect in both the smoke and the aftertaste. It quickly went from light in body to medium or even medium full. It Finished with pronounced chocolate notes.
This was a great smoke. The construction was impeccable but the burn line was uneven at some points and It took quite some time for any real flavors to develop. It was a very different cigar from what I’m use to from the Romeo Y Julienta line, it had a lot of transitions and it is oone I recommend to have in your humidor.
