Espinosa Cigars Laranja Reserva
This cigar had a classic look that had a smooth and seamless wrapper. It had a caramel-color with a tangy sweet pre-light smell that had spice and hay notes. The cigar was solid between the fingers and had an effortless draw. A lot more of the hay notes were present with fruity undertones on the pre-light taste. There was an incredible amount of white pepper through the nose and in the taste. Cocoa and other spicy notes developed rather quickly along with a medium-full body that escalated to full just as fast. It had a great burn and overall construction, which made this effortless to enjoy. It held on to a long, very dark gray ash and never became soft or bitter near the end. The aroma changed and became richer as the cigar was smoked. It had a very long, very full finish that left a lasting impression. Not overly complex but it was loaded with easygoing, full flavors. This is a cigar that will keep the attention of a seasoned connoisseur and one that won’t knock over a newbie.
