Joya de Nicaragua celebracion toro

From what I’ve learned on the net, the Joya de Nicaragua celebracion series uses the same blend as filler and binder as their famous Antano 1970 series but with a Cuban seed Criollo wrapper. I got this cigar in a four toro Joya de Nicaragua sampler.

The wrapper has a latte color with a few veins and it is quite oily. The cigar has a strong barnyard smell and a good construction. The predraw is fine and I get a mild sweet flavor from it.

I taste some sweet coffee and after half an inch I also taste some sweet straw which has a mild musty feel to it. Some puffs later I taste wood and grass with the straw, the flavors aren’t all that.

Halfway I get a bitter flavor and some citrus with the flavors I mentioned before. After two thirds I taste sweet cedar with a mild bitter feel. The citrus disappears. The cigar gets better for a short while but then it turns bitter and nasty.

The smoke time of this cigar is an hour and fifteen minutes. The draw is a bit on the loose side and the smoke is medium. The light gray ash is quite firm. I had to correct the burn a few times. This cigar is medium bodied and medium flavored.

Would I buy this cigar again? No, I like the Antano 1970 series, but this, not at all
