Filler / Binder: Dominican Republic & Nicaragua
Construction (0-20): Not surprisingly, the small size packs what feels like the perfect amount of tobacco. It’s wrapped tightly, but has enough give to allow for a good draw. The initial cut revealed only a small amount of tobacco excess, which was expected just from the initial feel. Lighting went perfectly, helping to keep the burn extremely even. I was also very happy to say the cigar held its ash well throughout, spanning about an inch and a half each time.
Strength (0-20): Noted as a medium bodied cigar, this one does hit strikingly close to it. This begins as a very mild cigar, with the strength slowly building. Once you hit the halfway point, it will sit right in the middle of the medium range. Through the last half, the 107 only slightly increases.
Additional Notes: Paired with coffee at Cigars International.
