This 5×52 stick features a dark tan wrapper with a firm pack, fine tooth and oily rough leather feel with minimal veins, tight invisible seams, double cap and pungent wet earth and hay aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw with good thick medium bodied smoke output showing flavors of a smooth leather on the draw quickly followed by a deep pepper and earth through the long finish. Moving through 1/2 way 25 minutes in, the ash held for the first third, draw is still great and the body has dropped to medium while the smoke thins. Flavors are similar, dropping the deep earth and pepper just leaving a sticky, creamy leather with tiny touches of spice on the short finish. Ending at 45 minutes, body is back to medium-full with copious amounts of smoke, draw flavors have moved to a parched dry wood and earth with a long smooth finish. Thank you very much to Arandoza Cigars for providing me this sample for review!
