This cigar was given to me by a friend – in an attempt to make me change my mind about the necessity of an anniversary cigar. I always thought they are not worthy the money we pay for them, plus these cigars come in limited quantities and are quickly discontinued afterwards. Which means – they are often too expensive for common smokers Well, I must admit I kinda changed my mind a little and am now thinking about trying something from Carlos Torano Silver and Gold lines as well. Thanks, Pete, you turned my world upside down….. LOL
Appearance: At first glance, it was a perfect stick – a square pressed cigar with no visible (and I also hope – no invisible as well ) spots on it. Nice smooth wrapper of a dark color – seemed to be a maduro cigar, though no mention of it in its official description. The wrapper with some veins on it was oily enough to give me a hint about its overall good condition – both external and interior.
Flavor: I smelled it before I lit it and the pleasant nuances of chocolate and even a bit of caramel, spice and leather agitated my nose immediately. I could smoke it with an afterlunch cup of coffee – I think it would be the best match. However I decided to pair it with simple water – and it wasn’t bad either.
First third: I cut the cigar carefully to discover it had a very nice draw predicting it would also have a good burn. When I lit it, I felt like a plenty of spice and peppery notes reached my nose. I was also thrilled to feel those sweet chocolate nuances I discovered in the prelight. It wasn’t bad at all, since I’m a big fan of sweeties even in the cigar world.
Second third: the cigar continued with its peppery notes but took it a little easier and added some raisins and dark coffee to the overall sensation. I had some insignificant burn issues in the midway but didn’t want to interfere. So it came out to normal in a few minutes without my help.
Last third: The smoke remained medium bodied with pronounced peppery and chocolate shades. Its rich bold taste made me feel I made a right choice when agreed to take it as a gift from Pete
Conclusion: I was eager to smoke it till the very end but it was too short for that. And I think this was its only disadvantage I would definitely make it a regular line for usual smokers to be able to afford. $5-$7 per stick doesn’t seem too much for me but I would recommend you buying the entire box – to get a bunch (lot) of pleasure at a more affordable price. Just be sure you get one cigar as a gift before buying the whole box.
