True to Cohiba the aromas were mild coffee and soft grass, we were greeted immediately by an elegantly smooth burn that produced a fragrant smoke with distinct richness. Subtle flavours of wood, sweet spice, coffee bean and vanilla all swirled through this bouquet and left a touch of spice on the lips at the finish.
This cigar lasted around the 90 minute mark and stayed consistent with a medium body and strength profile from beginning to end. For an enhanced experience try pairing this one with a cuban coffee or fine brandy after dinner.
