Body: Chocolate covered cherry, prune.
Foot: Rum Raisin.
Cold Draw: Yellow raisins, rum, dark chocolate, cherry.
Tasting Notes: In the first third I get Clove, nutmeg, Cocoa, Dark Cherry, Yellow Raisin, white pepper, cream, molasses, and aged rum cask wood. True to the notes on the band and bag, tropical fruits are in full effect along with chocolate and caramel. WOW. This is also what I like to call a juicy cigar. It’s most like a baked good. You may need to make double puffs to get big smoke production. I really enjoy these juicy maduro cigars at times.
In the second third I get more tropical fruits, chocolate and caramel. The smoke is creamy and dreamy and the fruits add to that juicy thing. There is the rum cask wood which would be oak but different because of the alcohol stored in it. The retro is white pepper and dried tropical fruits like mango, coconut, banana and pineapple. Cocoa all throughout.
In the final third the caramel takes the lead with tropical dried fruits behind it and a list of other flavors like chocolate, wood, white pepper and baking spices. If I were to make a fall weather cigar, this may be it. The smoke is some of the creamiest I have ever had and the retro is very pleasant while very satisfying. Such full and fruity flavors are not easy to find.
