A friend of mine gave me this slightly box pressed 5 x 52 mini belicoso by Onyx, a cigar with a nice blackened Connecticut broadleaf wrapper, Nicaraguan binder and filler from Nicaragua, Peru and the Dominican republic. The predraw is fine, and the aroma is quite strong. I smell hay, like I am in a stable.
After lighting the cigar I notice that the draw is fine and that the cigar produces more than enough smoke. The flavors I taste are coffee with wood, but after half an inch the wood is replaced by chocolate.
This flavor sticks with me until I reach the middle of the cigar and then a spicy black pepper joins the other flavors. After 2/3rd the chocolate fades away and wood comes in its place. Lots of flavor, medium bodied. Nice cigar.
Would I buy this cigar again? Yes, reasonably priced, good quality, nice flavors. This could be a ‘must have’ stick in my humidor
