Extravagant gold leaf adorns the Cavalier Geneve LE 2020 Box-pressed barber pole toro. Where? It hides beneath the band, just like all of Cavalier’s cigars. The smokeable 24 karat gold leaf speaks to the luxurious lifestyle conveyed by the brand. I drew in neutral notes of tobacco on the cold draw. Dry cocoa awaited once I lit the cigar, the lingering flavor until coffee joined in the second third. Oaky notes pushed through, retreating to an earthy finish. Subtle spices mastered the retrohales from open to close. The gold leaf left a golden, yet tarnished, ash.
