Bartolomeo Posted March 30, 2010 Share Posted March 30, 2010 -Cinnamon colored wrapper, immaculate condition, hardly any noticeable veins -Pre draw was just tobacco and hay -First time I have smoked a Phoenico -Initial puff is some dark coffee, sweet wood and a hint of leather -Very smooth so far in flavor with a light-medium profile early in the 1/3 -Ash didn’t stay on long, only about 1.5” -Mild RA typical flavors so far, nothing that stands out too much but flows nicely -Some Paprika spice at the end of the 1/3 -Start of the 2/3 is coffee, cedar, hay and some sweet spices……..all very smooth -If I had to guess at this point, this cigar is built for the long haul and not meant to be smoked anytime soon -Draw and burn are perfect so far -Aftertaste is kind of like a coffee shake -2/3 is more sweet spice, coffee, light wood -Final 1/3 is spicier with continous coffee, wood, hay and hint of leather……all very smooth -Cigar ends as Medium, smooth - I would say 9/10 now with potential of 9.4 in years to come, too early now to enjoy the benefits this cigar will show Bart Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
