Quesada Cigars Quesada Reserva Privada
This cigar was covered with a very oily wrapper that had a leathery type of appearance. The pre-light nose was pungent with ripe fruity, earthy notes. The pre-light taste had more hay-like notes. The cigar was solid in the hand and once clipped, had an incredibly smooth and effortless draw with just the slightest resistance. Right away the smoke had a mouthwatering quality backed with a white peppery spice that lingered through the finish of each puff, and was especially noticeable when retro-haling the smoke. The sweetness from the pre-light nose eventually followed through into the flavor and aroma. The cigar had a full body with full flavors and aroma not long after being lit, however, it didn’t overwhelm the senses or hit you in the back of the throat. More earthy and wood notes developed with some sweet hay and cocoa notes in the aroma. This was a complex, full-bodied, full flavored cigar that left a lasting impression. An ideal smoke after a meal or if you can sit back and relax with it.
