Pairing Comments
Well aged, nuanced and balanced so it should not be paired with anything overwhelming; keep it light to express the complexity of this aged cigar.
Final Thoughts
Blended with only Viso tobaccos, this cigar is made to show off its wrapper and not be overpowering... Medium bodied but very fragrant - great aroma! The 7 years of aging has created a very round medium body but the aromas are impressive. Very good for a beginner or experienced smoker who doesn't want to be overwhelmed. Also, must try the Puro Components!!! Best flavor education ever!
