Smoked: May 2nd 2021
Age: Unknown
Stored Humidity 70%
Appearance: Dark Maduro
Smell: Chocolate, Coffee
Pre Draw: Spicy Chocolate
Draw: Loose
Strength: Medium
Burn: 4.5/5
Smoke time: 1h15
Paired with: Coffee

First third: Creamy thick smoke, with flavors of dark chocolate and espresso, very bitter but good.

Second third: No more chocolate. Still getting that bitter espresso with hints of earth & wood. Almost like an old Oak barrel.

Last third: Black licorice, and a bit of spice & pepper.

After reading some reviews, I was expecting a stronger spicier cigar. Pretty bland flavors, nothing special but still good. The draw was looser than I like, almost no resistance. For the price I paid I would recommend it (8$ Canadian).

Final Score: 7.5/10

I like the review. If you have another, dry box it for 3 or 4 days. I think it will taste better.

Good Idea! I have 3 more.
I'd be interested if you cut it again (taking off slightly more) after about 2/3 of the cigar is smoked if it would lose the bitterness?
