0/3: It actually looks like a well made cigar. Some veins, but none too pronounced. A small amount of oils on the wrapper and the cigar is a little hard to the touch. Trust me, I would love nothing more than to like this cigar since the Cu-Avana Intenso cigar is so cheap.
1/3: Wild is the first word that comes to mind. Wild spice leads the way. And then it calms down. I get a little bit of plum in the retrohale.
2/3: The burn goes a little off. Not a full bodied cigar, more medium-full bodied. Wildness is all gone now. That plum flavor has grown. Good draw.
3/3: Plum, leather and earth are evident. Good finish.
Conclusion: I don’t know why but I was surprised that this was a good cigar. Good flavors all the way through.
