60 blends.. 60 iterations before Adrian Acosta felt that this project was finally ready to bring to the market. If nothing else, we admire the patience and intentionality he took in this process. Sometimes we feel that attitude to bring the best to the market is dismissed or lost. Now the stakes are raised, and we are excited to have broken this one down to see how well he did. Let’s get into it!
Construction - This cigar was smooth and slightly oily, with an abundance of protruding veins. Production quality is top notch. We also like the new school vibrant approach to the band. The funky gold font is fun and the layered bright colors above and below make these cigars very appealing. It’s refreshing not to see the same old tired art we are accustomed to.
Burn - Both samples smoked great. Each boating an easy draw with good smoke production. Both cigars did experience an abrupt outage, but a quick relight on both got them back on track in no time.
Flavor - Another week where opinions differed drastically, the only exception being that we both picked up on the ame flavors being wood, earthy, creamy, with some fint pepper, however one experience was exciting and spirited showing off a wonderful complexity that seemed to bring certain flavors in anticipated intervals while the other was dull and flacid, causing a constant head shake leaving one to ponder if they contracted Covid-19 and lost all sense of taste. The combination rotates often, giving you something different in each puff all the way to the end.
