Tasting Notes: First light is a huge blast of flavor! Dark caramel, espresso beans, brown sugar, red pepper, raw leather, and almond rush over the palate. Raw cane sugar, and marshmallow follow. The retrohale is strong adding a warm cinnamon burn.
As it progresses, whipping cream and toffee appear. Cinnamon stick and black pepper emerge along with red oak wood and nutmeg.
Halfway, the richness and body grows even more. Big waves of dark chocolate and cabernet wine emerge. Bourbon whiskey, macadamia nuts, and hint of sweet cloves join the mix. The complexity is almost too much to describe!
Last third, things get even more intense! Huge blasts of milk chocolate, spiced rum, buttercream, and cedar wood are added to the mix. Chocolate frosting, molasses, and toasted nuts. The cigar stays perfectly cool and the burn is a razor's edge all the way to the nub!
