For this review I chose the Lonsdale vitola, and the cigar measures 6" with a 44 ring gauge. The filler tobacco in the cigar is all Nicaraguan, and is finished with a Honduran binder. The filler tobacco I have read and been told comes from Esteli and Jalapa, and those are two of the best regions in my opinion. The cigar is then finished with a Habano seed wrapper Ecuador, and is simply beautiful in hand. The cigar is very firm, and there is a few amount of oils present on the wrapper. It has some veins present, but is very smooth to touch. It has a solid Colorado wrapper, and it has a natural brown coloring. The aroma shows some wood notes, nutty qualities, bits of spices and peppers, and also some lovely leather notes.
When I get into the final third the flavor profile finishes strong, and it is showing the oak, spice and citrus notes on the forefront. There is a nice bit of coffee bean and almond notes following that and it has a spicy and white peppery finish. It has a nice leathery and barnyard finish to the cigar, and it is a very flavorful cigar. The construction in the final third is terrific, and it has been similar to this from the beginning. The ash has kept that firmness which it has had throughout, and with that the charcoal coloring as well. The strength level has been remaining at that medium full level in this third, and from beginning to end the cigar has been a solid medium bodied cigar. As I smoke the cigar down to the nub the flavors remain to be wonderful and the last draw to the smoke is cool and very enjoyable.
