Kangaroo495 Posted April 3, 2010 Share Posted April 3, 2010 Wrapper: Colorado. Milky cocoa. Smooth and oily, no veins. Quite surprising for a SP. Was truly amazed when I saw this box in the shop. Aroma: Nothing really to speak of Draw: On the light side, but packed full of tobacco. Reminds me of a non-Cuban draw. 1st half: There was a distinct flavour evolution with this cigar, which occured over 2 halves rather than 3 thirds. The first third opened up gloriously, with a mouth full of cream and nuts, and a nose full of pepper. Accompanied with a scotch and coke, which seemed to ccent the flavour. Body is light-medium. Strangely, if it wasn't for the SP band, I'd have thought this was a Bolivar. Don't remember SP ever having this flavour profile. It was always more of a savoury cigar. 2nd half: Complete backflip. No cream, no nuts. What I got was a mouthful of earth and chocolate. The earth I got was quite dry. Reminded me a bit of dirt, and chocolate was unsweetened. The cigar was quite tart, and I could see why people describe SPs as "salty". At the nub, the cigar became vegetal, and the nuts returned slightly. The vegetal flavour was something comparable to capsicum. I'd call this a complex and interesting cigar. One to be smoked for the experience. Something that requires concentration and attention. Th combustion was exremely fast, and I got through the stick in about 50 mins. Burn was something to behold. A perfect 10/10. Legendary cigar. Despite the fact the the presentation is pretty average, do not overlook this gem. 92/100 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
