An Interesting Cigar, unique in being handmade and Flavoured. A small cigar but it would be a mistake to think this cigar a short everyday smoke, I took a good 45 minutes as I had been advised this would really let the flavours of the cigar express themselves.
It is sound advice, this cigar has a very strong coffee taste on the inhale that is then muted by a wonderful subtle vanilla sweetness on the exhale that coats your lips (not in a chemical way). It is best described as a Vanilla latte really nice smoke.
That being said if this cigar was rushed then that coffee earthy taste would overpower and become very harsh spoiling what is a very nice cigar that is also on the stronger side of a medium tasting cigar which was also a surprise.
As you get to the second half (not big enough for thirds) the earthy coffee inhale develops a very subtle peppery kick changing the taste to a spiced vanilla latte again a very nice surprise given that most flavoured cigars tend to be nasty, I do wonder if this cigar is infused rather than flavoured as that would account for the much better taste.
Certainly a Cigar that smells slightly aromatic and overall a very nice surprise for a small cigar it packs quit a bit of flavour but again it really needs the time if you rushed this it would be harsh. Will certainly have again which is good seeing as I bought a box of 10

Bought 3 of these as well as 3 of the 'Honey' flavoured wrapper blend and the construction, burn and ash on these cigars were solid also, but still a lack of flavour taste of vanilla from these cigars, the aroma of the vanila was a bit more enjoyable and noticeable than with the 'Honey' flavour and so I enjoyed these that little bit more.
Value wise they are a stick worth trying, but as with 'Honey' flavour blend the price is a bit higher than the level of taste, aroma and overall enjoyment I got from these cigars and I think the Leon Jimenes brand can definitely improve on these cigars alot more, but still are an ok stick for morning coffee or someone who enjoys a milder short smoke.
Overall rating 3/5
