This 6 x 52 Trinidad Cuban puro stands out from the masses because of the pigtail at the mouthpiece of the cigar. The wrapper is pretty and only has some small veins. The aroma is mild but clearly the well known Cuban barnyard smell. The predraw is on the hard side of fine and leaves me with a raisin flavor.
I can taste warm coffee and leather flavors soon to be accompanied by a chocolate aftertaste. After an inch the coffee and leather disappear and the chocolate becomes the main flavor and turns a bit creamy. The power of the flavor grows a bit. Halfway I can taste the mild leather flavor again. At 2/3rds I say goodbye to the chocolate, creamy leather keeps me company until a full nutty flavor tells me it is time to put the cigar away.
The draw is on the tough side of good. The amount of smoke is a bit thin, I would have liked a bit more smoke. The ash is compact, firm and light colored with a perfect burn. In the beginning this cigar doesn’t pack a lot of power to the flavors, but slowly the flavors and the cigar become more powerful, although it never turns into a powerhouse. I would call this cigar a medium smoke.
Would I buy this cigar again? Even though I liked the finish, I don’t think I will buy this cigar again due to the high price.
