Octavo III

Last week I received 2 Octavo III from the unknown cigar maker havanacigar, a 150mm ring 52 cigar made in the Dominican Republic out of Dominican tobacco with a Connecticut shade leaf. The cigar looks fine, pretty light brown oily wrapper and feels firm. The smell is a bit like being in a stable and the predraw is just the way it should be.
The first flavor I get I can’t describe, I don’t recognize it but it is a nice flavor. I think I tasted some hay mixed with some other unrecognizable flavors. It’s not an unpleasant flavor though, I like it. It becomes a bit sour but again, not unpleasant. Way on the background I get some chocolate and the overall taste is warm & creamy. Halfway the cigar gives a bit of burn on the tongue, but doesn’t become bitter.
The smoke is full and the ash is white and firm. Too bad that I had to correct the burn a few times.
Would I buy this cigar again? Yes, it’s a good cigar for its price.
