This full-bodied cigar has a dark and oily Maduro wrapper with delicious hints of earthy espresso on the wrapper. This cigar creates a nice plume of white smoke upon the initial light-up, while exuding flavors of black pepper. As you smoke the cigar, flavors greatly mellow into a mild profile of cocoa powder and espresso beans with leather notes. However, the final flavor profile ends with a spicy kick of chili flakes and black pepper, leaving your taste buds excited and craving for more.

Occasion & Pairing
It is recommended to pair it with an aged cognac, scotch or whisky. The distillation process of these drinks infuses them with a variety of flavors that are enhanced by the ageing in wood barrels. The result is a strong and complex drink. Also, it's a great match with peaty Islay, heavier Highland single malts, or dark stouts.
