Chocolate, cream, and smooth is how I would describe this firmly packed little gem I discovered from none other than Crowned Heads which never cease to amaze me. Kurt and I were at Cigars International hanging out when I found this cigar paired with a Left Hand Brewing Milk Stout. Normally this would be something of a dessert combination, but not even having lunch yet for the day I went against my inner empty stomach and decided to take on these beauties together. I was glad I did.
The cigar starts out with lots of chocolate and almost souffle style butteriness on the palette. It was very enjoyable from start to finish. The milk stout helped to bring out the chocolate and hint of nut flavor. I would recommend this smoke to all pallets that love a slightly heavier smoke with dessert like qualities. Smoking this cigar while in the company of good friends is definitely the way to go.

I have 3 beautiful daughters and a wonderful wife, we live in the Dallas, Tx area. I also enjoy a good bourbon, craft beer, and absolutely love the ocean and beach.
