Principle Cigars Aviator Series
This was a uniquely shaped, classic sized cigar. The binder and filler tobacco were cut clean when the cigar was made with a wrapper that closed off the foot and was twisted into a pigtail. The cigar was heavy in the hand and felt solid between the fingers. The wrapper had a texture like smooth, oily leather. It was a deep brown, almost reddish color. The pre-light nose was full with tangy sweet notes. After thoroughly toasting the foot with a torch the cigar offered a dense textured, full flavored profile. It had a good amount of spices that lingered in the taste. A black pepper flavor and white peppery spiciness was noticed in the nose. The spices were smooth and not overwhelming. There was a sweet edge in the aroma with a very mild floral note. Overall the aroma had a rich, luring, very pleasant quality. The cigar was full overall but very balanced. This would be a great cigar to age for a while. Not overly complex, it was easy to appreciate the rich full qualities this cigar had to offer.
