Size: 6.5×42, Cervantes (Lonsdale).

Wrapper: Milk chocolate, oily and silky smooth with tiny veins.

Construction: Firm even feel when lightly squeezed.

Cold draw: Hay and wood.

1st third: Starts with a light oakwood, earthy sweetness and 80% dark chocolate.

2nd third: Hints of black pepper and leathery notes.

An extremely underrated cigar. It’s got all the beloved qualities of the no. 4, but longer. At about 6.5 inches, it is a pleasure to behold. The examples I’ve smoked have been exceptionally crafted. The burn is razor sharp and ash builds up perfectly like dime stacks.
