This CI legend is blended by Don Pepin Garcia and it can’t go wrong there, I have loved every Don Pepin cigar I smoked so far. This 5.7 x 54 cigar has a nice aroma to it that reminds me of some Cuban cigars I smoked in the past, the wrapper is smooth, shiny and oily with some very small veins. The predraw is good and leaves a sweet flavor.
A full cedar flavor is what I get after lighting the cigar, combined with some herbs and after an inch some leather is introduced to the palate. The cedar disappears and the leather and herbs leave an amazing flavor on my palate. At the end some chocolate joins the herbs and the leather. For the grande finale the leather and herbs fade away and the cedar returns and pairs well with the chocolate.
This is a full flavored medium bodied cigar which produces a lot of smoke. The draw is good but unfortunately the burn is crooked, something I haven’t experienced in the other CI Legends yellow I smoked, so I just blame it on this specific cigar and not on the whole batch.
Would I buy this cigar again? Hell yeah, I already did
