Fighting Cock

Sean G Delicious Nicaraguan Handmade
Toro (6.0"x50): Consistent in flavor from head to foot with a smooth, clean finish. Creamy notes of spice and pepper swirl about while the well-balanced character creates an enjoyable aroma. For the price, this blend really impressed us. Well-constructed.

Torpedo (6.2"x52): Slightly more complex than the toro size but the draw remains quite tight. We suggest cutting the head down a bit further than usual on this one. Expect a strong flavor with the same enjoyable aroma as this size creates a lot more in terms of pepper and spice. Still remains medium-bodied from head to foot and burns slow.

Robusto (5.0"x52): A great 45-minute smoke but it remains rather one dimensional througout. Maintained an effortless draw but burned slightly uneven due to a thick vein in the wrapper. Produces plumes of thick smoke but this size doesn't represent the blends full potential.

Churchill (7.0"x48): Bold yet unbalanced is the theme of this churchill. If you're looking for more of a full-bodied experience, this is your size. The blend builds in strength as it burns but doesn't release as much smoke as the other sizes. It also burns slightly hot after 3 inches.
