Textured brown hues illuminate the natural beauty and complexity of this smoke.
Whiffs of cedar and freshly cut grass foreshadow the elegant personality of this smoke.
Early flavours of cedar and dark cocoa seduce your senses in the first third of the draw. The ligero unfolds a firm body that slowly undresses layers of spices with whispers of roasted nuts that balance the spice in the second third of the draw. The final third carries a lingering sweetness with occasional hints of cocoa in a gratifying finish. An elegant and even smoke.
SUMMARY OF CIGAR EXPERIENCE
Box pressed (also called square pressed) cigars are literally pressed into the box where the pressure from the box creates a square shape. Originating in Cuba, this practice was initially adopted to save shipping space but found to cause the cigars to burn longer and with a more consistent flavour, thereby giving the connoisseur a more enjoyable smoke.
Raul Julia said ‘A cigar is as good as the memories that you have when you smoked it.’ We hope you enjoy many memorable moments with this cigar.
