This cigar created by Edgar Hoill a photographer known for his One Shot One Kill brand. It was recommended to me as a fine smoke. However this cigar has no band and little information on the box. It comes as a chocolate colored stick wrapped in a light white paper with spiderwebbing artwork. I had to search on the internet for the little information I have in this review.
Today, I sat by the pool with this cigar and some Theo's Organic Fair Trade Mint Dark Chocolate and a Natural Brew Vanilla Creme Soda.
I took a sniff of the foot of this nicely contructed chocolate torpedo with light veins and smelled cocoa and hay. I sniffed the stick and smelled sweet and barnyard. I clipped the cap and took a nice draw of spicy hay. I toasted the foot and the smoke was full and the flavor I tasted was cedar and wood. Later on during this third I also tasted citrus. The burn was uneven and the dense ash was a nice grey with spots and lines of black.
The ash was about to fall for the first time about half way into the stick so I tapped it into the ash tray right before it fell. The burn was almost even and the smoke was pumping out full. Notes of leather and wood were the dominate flavors in this section. A hint of spicy earthiness was also prevalent for a few draws.
The last third and leather, salt and citrus was what I was tasting. The burn evened out and the ash was holding strong and when I saw it begining its decend, I tapped it into the ash tray. I smoked this stick until I couldn't hold it anymore.
This was a nice smoke and I would recommend you give it a try. I just wish I was able to find out more information on the stick. I hope this review helps get more informtion out there.
