Gaby Kafie sent me two of his new 1901 Don Fernando cigars and I was excited to receive them. Today I sat down by the pool with this cigar, a capt' Eli's Root Beer and some Trader Joe's Triple Ginger Cookie Thins.
This chocolate colored cigar is well constructed with minimal veins running through it. The band is simple elegance and the foot has a piece of red ribbon wrapped around it. The stick had a light sheen to it. I took off the ribbon and sniffed the foot and a strong chocolate smell is filling my nose. I smelled a sweaty barnyard from the stick. I clipped the cap and took a dry draw of hay and a spice. I toasted the foot and tasted cedar and coffee from the first few draws of full creamy smoke. I also tasted hints of citrus and nuttiness later in the first third.
