An impressive Gran Churchill format enclosed in a chocolate brown Ecuadorian Habano wrapper develops a charming creaminess at the introduction, followed by spicy flavors attributed to the Nicaraguan Esteli Seco tobacco.
A blend and format perfectly fitting to celebrate the Chinese New Year - Year of the Dog. A collection of Limited Edition accessories was also developed to allow the cigar aficionado the opportunity to travel and properly care for this special cigar.
The 1st Third of the Cigar starts with a semi-sweet chocolate with some stimulation of spice. Sweet dark fruit notes similar to raisins also become apparent.
During the 2nd Third an aroma becomes sweet and nutty. Sweet cedar notes are more apparent with spice having a more dominant presence. Dark fruit and leather take over sensation in retro-hale along with hints of licorice.
The Final Third develops a cocoa powder and spiced wood notes. Dark fruit flavors remain, richness continues on, and some salty stimulations develops. Strength remains medium, with dominant woody, chocolate & cinnamon spice attributes.
