CLE Cigars Azabache
This little box pressed cigar was attractive to the eye with an evenly colored, oily wrapper that had a lot of rich tones on the pre-light smell. The pre-light taste was unique with vanilla and cocoa notes. It had an intriguing flavor profile with a smoky, spicy cocoa flavor that had a nutty quality to it, which also developed in the aroma of the smoke later on. The smoke had a dense and creamy texture with a lot of spicy peppers in the nose when retro-haled. It had a clean taste and a full, smooth body. Well-balanced mouth feel with a full and rich aroma. The cigar continued to pick up strength as it was smoked finishing very full. This was a complex cigar with great flavors and balance. For as bold tasting and spicy as this cigar was, it had refinement and smoked without a hitch. Outstanding construction with a slow and even burn.
