First light is a huge wave of creamy white chocolate, honey, white oak, and vanilla bean. Espresso, tanned leather, and clove immediately follow. The retrohale warms with a beautiful cinnamon burn. The finish lingers on the palate for several minutes adding massive sweet and creamy flavors.
As it progresses, honeycomb, nutmeg, and cardamom are added. Cafe latte and toasted nuts appear along with hints of molasses and black tea.
Halfway the blend begins to "round out" and the flavor of aged tobacco begins to strongly emerge. Big notes of caramel, mocha, custard, and rum barrel. Hints of graham cracker and amaretto. The finish tastes like sugar cookies. I don't know how else to say it...This cigar is phenomenal!
Last third, everything crescendos! Bold blasts of sugar cane, cinnamon stick, licorice, red pepper, and butter. Creamed honey, maple, and brown ale. The burn is perfect and the cigar stays cool all the way to the nub!
