6 X 52 Toro
Wrapper: CT Broadleaf Mediums
Binder: Mexican San Andreas Negro
If rustic is what they were going for, rustic is what they got. The veiny wrapper paired with both the closed foot and the seemingly faded band all play into that rustic feel. Beyond that I would say this cigar is pretty sophisticated. The stick had the typical DE loose draw (a little too loose for me, but did not cause any hot burn or anything negative at all.) and produced tons of smoke, which is typical to a DE stick. The flavors were nicely balanced and full flavored with hints of cocoa powder and spice. As the cigar went along the cocoa come forward more and really became the forefront of the flavor profile. I would say that it is full flavored but a mild/medium strength. I think that this is a nice success for Drew Estates, and worthy of a box split.
