From the first puff, the palate is engulfed with rich, earthy flavors that continue to build as the cigar burns. The wrapper appears to be flawless, showing some tooth and veins, while burning evenly throughout. The strength cannot be under estimated. By the third inch, the cigar is very robust and does give off some slightly sweet nuances. However, these are carefully masked by the intense strength and spice of ligero tobaccos. A full bodied masterpiece.
