Before the Smoke

A beautiful light brown Connecticut wrapper | Leathery but not oily to the touch | firm & light in weight

Cold Draw

hay, barnyard, and wheat

First Third

Right from the start this cigar had notes of hay and barnyard.  The draw was extremely smooth from first puff. As you can see from the photo, this cigar had a razor sharp burn.

Midway through the first third there is a bit of spice (not pepper). It is a very mild spice.

Second Third

Alpha Cigars The DefuserThe spice took center stage. Each puff started with a bit of spice, hay, and then a bit of a soft cream finish.

The burn line started a bit wavy but soon corrected itself.

Final Third

The spice really took over. Every few puffs, there was still a bit of hay but it was a very smooth spice and cream with the majority of the finish. What a fantastic finish– cream and spice.

The burn like was fantastic and the draw was open and smooth.

Final Thoughts

  • If we can some up this cigar in one word– consistent.
  • Very few note changes but if you are the type who likes a cigar that is the same from the first third to the final, this cigar is for you!
