The green candela cigar leaf is rather floral with a little tart and tangy citrus, a fair amount of grassy vegetation, tea, cedar, hints of pepper, some smoke, and a little earth and wood as the lead component. The earth, woody, nutty burley is more of a secondary player than it is a supporting one. The sugary, toasty black cavendish does play a secondary role. The bright Virginia chips in with some tart and tangy citrus, grass, bread, sugar, light tart lemon and floralness along with a couple pinches of spice. It is a condiment. The caramel, cream and honey toppings mildly sublimate the tobaccos, and fade a tad toward the finish. The strength and nic-hit are a step shy of the medium mark. The taste is medium. There’s no chance of bite or harshness, and barely has any rough edges. Mildly complex, it burns cool and clean at a reasonable rate with a mostly consistent sweet, floral, lightly spicy, savory flavor that translates to the pleasantly lingering after taste, and room note. Barely leaves any dampness in the bowl, and requires an average number of relights. Thought it has a moderate punchiness, it can be an all day smoke. Three stars out of four.
