The first thing that popped in my head while enjoying these was how smooth they were. There’s absolutely no spice to the blend. The cigar has an oaky core with a rich espresso finish and has absolutely no complexity. Of course, I say that as a complement. There are a ton of cigars out there that boast a world of complexity but end up falling flat in muddled confusing mess. La Historia shows what a seasoned blender can do with properly aged and fermented tobaccos. Carrillo has been in the business for a long time and knows that you don’t need to throw a million flavors at a palate for a cigar to be good. Novices will like this cigar; season enthusiasts will love it.
