Saint Luis Rey (Habanos)

Saint Luis Rey churchill

A beautiful bold cigar, 6.9 inch long with a ring of 47, the wrapper has a light brown wrapper, almost like milky chocolate with lots of small veins. The aroma is quite mild, a bit dry hay. The predraw is a bit tough.

This is definitely a Cuban cigar as the first flavor is clearly the typical Cuban leather, which stands out from all other countries. The flavors are a bit too mild for my taste, it isn’t the right choice for the time of the day (close to midnight), maybe it would be a better pick as a morning smoke or an after (light) lunch smoke, the smooth cognac that I was drinking overpowered the cigar completely. Halfway the cigar grows a bit in strength and I could discover some cedar with the leather. A bit later the leather is gone and the cedar is the only thing I can discover.

The cigar is probably rolled too tight because the draw is hard and the amount of smoke is way beyond what it should be.

Would I buy this cigar again? Probably another one to try, to give it a second chance
