Pairing Comments
Pairing a chocolate peanut butter brownie with this smoke intensifies the rich cocoa flavors in the tobaccos. I typically do not pair food with cigars, but this combo is a must try.
Final Thoughts
The cigar provides intense flavors of sweet tobaccos and rich cocoa. A great cigar to pair with a rich espresso, in the morning or afternoon.
