Flavor/Taste & Aroma:
On the pre-light inspection, the body of the cigar brings notes of leather and earth. On the cut, I find the draw to be flawless with just the right amount of resistance.
The Flor de Las Antillas take easily to the flame. On my initial draw, I am met with notes of wood and a subtle cocoa. A good start, hopefully it will continue.
The Flor de Las Antillas is one that has not disappointed. With straight burn lines and big plumes of aromatic smoke, the Flor de Las Antillas delivers solid notes of chocolate, wood, and spice that dance along the tongue through a perfect draw that never falters. Reaching medium body, this cigar has been a pleasure to smoke. With every draw, the burn lines move along the body leaving behind an eye-catching salt and pepper ash that reached the half way point before falling off. Along with solid nuances, a slick creaminess is also present that coats the palate, leaving a thick layer of flavorful goodness. The body stays cool to the touch and never showed any signs of distress. Strength was not a factor with the Flor de Las Antillas as it stayed mild with no nicotine rush whatsoever. Sitting on the back patio of my hotel, this cigar has been the perfect ending to a beautiful Texas evening.
