Wrapper: Kentucky Fire Cured
Appearance: Slightly Oily and slightly rough Wrapper
Pre-light: Reminded me of Frog Morton Cellar with a hint of molasses.
First Third: After lighting up, I got quite a bit of pepper and a hint of that latakia smokiness in pipe tobaccos.
Second Third: The pepperiness mellowed out quite a bit, and the smokey, woodsy latakia smokiness is a lot more apparent now. There is also a hint of maple syrupy...
Size: 7.5" x 38

Appearance: Oily brown wrapper with minimal veins

Other thoughts: I had a rough time keeping the burn straight. I had to touch up a few times to...
Size: 4.9 x 46
Wrapper: Ecuadorian Habano
Construction: Smooth oily wrapper, with thin veins
Flavor: Very light pepper. The pepper is pushed to the background as you start noticing a creamy sweet taste. It also has a bit of woodsy cedar to it. Near the end of the cigar I started getting more of a coffee flavor as the cedary, vanilla melted more into the background.
Other thoughts: Cigar burned very evenly and did not need to be touched up...
