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.


First third
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.

Second third
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.

Last third
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.
