Description

Tasting Notes: On the body, what?! Peanut brittle toffee? Whoa. The foot is the same..and the cold draw is vanilla bean, toffee and salted mocha. If the cigar smokes like it tastes and smells, we are in for one heck of a journey. The first third starts with cinnamon, mochas, vanilla, and toffee on the palate, and the retro is a red pepper zing with citrus. Holy moly! Further in the mouth feel is like a buttercream mint you get from a diner with butterscotch. It’s sort of like smoking a vanilla mocha latte or something. The second third starts with apple pie flavors. Warmth and coating of the mouth. Cinnamon, artificial hazelnut, more mocha and vanilla. The retro has calmed just a bit but still similar to that amazing zing. In the final third, leather comes into the mix and it tastes like a churro. Sugar, cinnamon, light chocolate frosting, and at the very end I get a smoky peaty note. This is the most dessert notes I have ever gotten in a cigar and I hope your sample smokes as good as mine.

Pairing Notes: Coffee, light, and sweet. Mocha anything. Latte. Frappuccino. Any dessert with coffee flavors. Coffee cake. Chocolate porter beers. Wheated bourbon. Scotch. Cognac. Chai Tea. After dessert chocolates. With Nutella.

    I’m fairly new to cigars (somewhere around 3 months in). My palate is developing but I more or less know what I like. This cigar is by far the best that I have had, and this is having smoked a few of the high end sticks. Vanilla and mocha with a nice spice from beginning to end, it was perfection with an iced coffee on the side. It doesn’t seem like you can find these anywhere else and I just ordered 7 more, two of which I will give to friends that I’m trying to get to jump on the Privada train. If these don’t sell out, I definitely plan on getting 10-20 if possible to save for special occasions. I know some of you vets can give a more in depth review, but man, this was a hell of a smoke. If I had to summarize it in one word, it would be: magical.

    Man these are great. Awesome flavor and mouth feel. Paired perfectly with an iced coffee!

    I really enjoyed this cigar and after smoking about 4 or 5 I have found it absolutely pays off to take your time smoking it. The flavors are very delicate but prominently stands out for me when I am patient. I could easily smoke this cigar in about 30 minutes, but It really pays off for me making it last around 45 or 50 minutes. I get sweet sugary bread notes with wood, subtle spice, leather, chocolate, and paired nicely with light roast coffee…Love this cigar!

    Great cigar! My favorite Connecticut so far! Great balance and complexity. Flavors are so unique from the first draw on.

    Best Connecticut shade in the game.

    I hated Connecticut cigars until I smoked this.

    Nutty, sweet, smooth. Just a dream to smoke.

    Carry on. Nothing to see here. (My #1 privada cigar) I can smoke this cigar any season, any time of day, and in any mood. Her construction and draw has never failed me!! Her smooth, creamy, almost velvet mouth feel is always constant. And sometimes a little spice comes out to remind you you’re smoking a top notch stick!

    A top 3 connecticut I’ve smoked! I’ve probably smoked ten of these. Everyone of them were perfect!

    Cuban Link is an example of what a cigar is supposed to be. Flawless construction, excellent burn and the FLAVORS!!! Creamy vanilla, wood, spice, hints of leather. I might cry when these are all gone.
