Light brown in color with only 1 prominent vein. Seams are tight and invisible. Very little sheen on the wrapper.
Earth and wood on the wrapper and earth wood and sweetness at the foot.
Sweetness and spice with a light floral scent.
Starting off there are subtle notes of spice and also a mild tangy citrus note. The draw and burn start off perfectly but after a handful of puffs there is a V burn pattern following a vein. A half dozen puffs later the burn self corrects.
The 2nd/3rd brings more spice in the warm cinnamon variety. The ash is a charcoal gray color and slightly flaky. The finish is medium in length with the prominent note of spice with a little creaminess. Near the end of the 2nd the spice dominates the flavor profile(not a bad thing). The strength started at a low medium but quickly moved to medium where it stayed. The ash holds on til I ash at each 3rd.
The spice mellows a bit at the start of the final/3rd to bring the flavors into balance. Overall the cigar provides an enjoyable smoking experience. Thanks to Carolee Martin(SW Rep) aka 50calcigargal on Instagram for the samples for review. You can follow the brand on Twitter @AzanCigars.
