Cigar reviews – 99 words or less
Kyle Gellis brought an old Cuban brand into the new millennia when he blended the La Hacienda. He packed the cigar with legendary Nicaraguan Corojo ’99 and Criollo ’98 tobaccos, resulting in a highly smokable stick. Notes of sourdough bread bowed in the cold draw. Black peppercorn came on strong on the front end. The pepper withdrew, leaving earth and hay. Coffee and pie crust moved in for a delectable second third. Coffee remained, pulling in nuts for the finale. The wavy burn and slight canoe did not take away from the experience.
