5" x 50 ring
Wrapper: Ecuador Binder: Nicaragua Filler: DR & Nicaragua
This cigar was part of a pair that were given to me last year. Nicely box pressed and almost black in color, the cigar felt solid and looked good.
In general I prefer natural wrappers to maduro, so I wasn't looking to get my socks knocked off. Even so, I was immediately impressed with how well the "sweet tobacco" flavor went with my oatmeal stout. The two flavors complemented each other so well, that they practically merged. I definitely recommend this combination.
In a word, the cigar was consistent. The burn was impeccible, the ash was solid, and the flavor didn't get harsh at the end. I'd heard that LGC had a reputation for excellent construction. Now I know that the reputation is deserved. I burned my fingers on this one, which is unusual for me. I'm now looking forward to torching the other one!
