This Philippian cigar made from Philippians and Brazilian filler, Philippians binder with a Sumatra wrapper is 140mm long and has a 44 ring. The wrapper is pretty and silky, the cigar feels tight but the predraw is fine. The aroma is very light which made me suspect that this is a light bodied cigar, and I was right.
The first flavor that is released after lighting is the flavor of dry hay, soon to be replaced with soft leather. The Brazilian tobacco creates a mild sweetness. After a third there is a little pepper which disappears soon and the cigar gives me a bit of a burning sensation for a while, with still the soft leather on the background. The burning sensation is replaced by a bit of a musty flavor. At the end the pepper returns.
The smoke is full and completely white, just as the ashes. The draw is fine, just as the burn.
Would I buy this cigar again? Perhaps, it is a nice light bodied cigar for during the day, maybe a nice replacement for the Jose L Piedra petit cazadores.
