Cory - Smooth with a satin sheen. Love the red tent of the Colorado wrapper. Can't look past the unique Hexagon shape
Chris - Very cool Hexagon shape. Like the colorado/natural like wrapper.
Cory - Good draw with excellent smoke production. Inconsistent burn line all the way through (listen to the podcast for further explanation)
Chris - Very consistent burn. Thick ash. 2-3 puffer Great smoke production
Decent smoke to try
Cory - With minor tweaks to the guts and a major tweak to the body, this new Alma Fuerte Natural Sixto II has captured the attention on the cigar world since its recent release and no doubt it will be heavily compared to its very successful older sibling. The cigar itself stands out with its redish colorado color and hexagon shape, but we all know that only helps get it on your hands. So how good is it? Overall this cigar is good. Yes. Just good, and NOT good enough to be worth the Andrew Jackson you are going to shell out for it. Listen, I am a massive fan of Plasencia, but even I have to admit to myself that some things are just out of bounds, and that is this cigar. The expression of flavors are a bit dull, and it lacks the complexity you would desire in a $20.00 cigar. There are flashes of really good flavor combinations, but because they are just so short lived that they are merely a tease. The balance is there, it is just a bit muted for me. There is certainly more to be desired for the price paid and it goes without saying at this point that this NEW Natural is simply less than it's older brother.
Chris - You know...it's pretty damn good. Is it "Alma Fuerte good" like the original maduro? Pretty close! It's premium, it's for the enthusiast smoker, but it's pricey. If you're good with 2/3 then it's a great cigar to snag before they're gone... Because I got the last one in the humidor.
