Cusano Cigars C-10
This cigar had a silky texture to the touch with a nice oily sheen. The pre-light smell was intense filled with big sweet and sour, earthy floral notes. There was a good amount of white peppery spice in the aroma and through the finish of each puff. The same floral quality from the pre-light carried over to the taste and was really noticeable in the aroma. As the cigar burned a rich, well-fermented tobacco trait developed. There was a good amount of spice that remained throughout the duration of the cigar, but it also had a sweet note in the taste and smell of the smoke. The burn was smooth and even, which produced a long and dense salt and pepper colored ash. This cigar had a unique profile with full flavors and an overall mild-medium body. More oak and nutty flavors developed. This cigar maintained a lot of its original traits. Although not available or made anymore, it’s a good example of how some cigars produced at Tabadom would age over the course of ten years.
