Cigar reviews – 99 words or less
There’s nothing like a churchill cigar and a cup of coffee to start the day. The Aladino Connecticut, covered in a yellow-brown wrapper, bore a simple silver, black and white band. My cold draw imparted hints of cavendish pipe tobacco, a surprising flavor. Once lit, biscuit dough and almonds debuted in the first third. Around the midpoint, these flavors transitioned to oak and then later to mocha. Only spice came through on the retrohales. While straightforward, the flavor profile was enjoyable. Mediocre construction meant a couple of touch-ups and a wavy burn, and airflow was satisfactory.
