“I would say this cigar was quite enjoyable. I thought the profile picked a lane and stayed in it throughout the first couple thirds. There was virtually no transitioning or deviation in those thirds, however, there was a nice depth and balance to the flavors presented. I specifically enjoyed the vanilla, especially alongside the toast (as I always enjoy toast in a profile). Then when the retrohale paired oak and vanilla, that was an attention getter. The final third brought about the only significant transition as the profile became more earthy, woody, and peppery. The end also saw a little more grassiness than I prefer but it wasn’t too much. As for performance, after an hour and 52 minutes of smoking, I have no complaints. I personally think this was a well done cigar, and I think it compliments the Edición Azul in the 1675 lineup.”
