I honestly didn’t know if I was going to be able to smoke this cigar or not. Not because it was full-bodied, but because of the weather! It seems like this time of year we are always under some sort of warning or watch whether it be tornado or thunderstorm! In fact, I had this cigar cut and ready to go when I realized that it was drizzling outside so I had to wait for that to pass. But it finally did pass and I was able to sit down outside and light up.
Here are the cigar’s details:
- Size: Colada (4 x 38)
- Wrapper: Connecticut
- Binder: Sumatran
- Filler: Nicaraguan
- Strength: Medium
This cigar was one of five different shapes in the Dulce line. Apparently the cigars are infused with Nicaraguan coffee before aging to make for a deliciously sweetened coffee-like cigar. This petit corona size was just perfect for the amount of time I had.
Using my double blade guillotine, I cut the cap of this nicely constructed cigar. It had just the right amount of give when squeezed and there were no noticeable blemishes in the wrapper. The pre light draw was loose and I immediately tasted the sweetness from the Connecticut wrapper.
Lighting the cigar was easy and created lots of creamy, white smoke. The sweetness that I tasted before lighting was still there with a hint of coffee and earthiness. It kept an even burn throughout the entire cigar. I didn’t even have to think about touching it up. The ash holds on strong with a nice smoky, gray color for almost an inch before I had to tap it off.
This is one of the few cigars I’ve had that didn’t feature much of a taste change throughout. It was a very sweet, coffee flavored earthy cigar from start to finish. I can’t say that it’s my favorite cigar, but definitely not bad. It would be the idea early morning cigar as it’s not too heavy. Enjoy this with an espresso!
