This cigar was enjoyed with Ice Water

Pre-Light: 20 Points of 10 Possible

This was a very nice looking stick! Nice dark chocolate wrapper, tight visible seams with minimal veins. It has a double cap with an eye catching band typical of the One Shot One Kill line. The pre-light aroma was a nice tobacco with hints of barnyard. The pre-light draw was very earthy and with little resistance.

Light & Burn: 13 Points of 15 Possible

The double cap made for an easy cut. The stick toasted up nicely and burned evenly with no touch ups or maintenance required. The initial ash held on only for a about an inch but looked to be very tight. This trend held for the remainder of the smoke; although, a bit flaky towards the end. I have no major complaints as the burn was cool and the flavor was great.

Construction: 28 Points of 30 Possible

The stick is very firm with zero defects. The draw was a little loose but almost perfect for me. It had very little resistance leading to great smoke output. It maintained its firm and tight construction to the nub.

Flavor: 30 Points of 45 Possible

In the first few puffs I got a bit of pepper and spice which transitioned to a more earthy flavor with hints of pepper which lingered for a bit. The spice and pepper definitely stands out on the retrohale. If that’s your flavor profile, this smoke is for you. After about the first inch the peppery spice died down to a mix of cream and cedar. At the midpoint it transitioned to a great leathery flavor that lingers on the palate. The leather with small hints of pepper held on to the nub.

Summary

After receiving the coffin a little over three weeks ago, I left the stick in its coffin until I pulled it out to smoke. It was a medium to full body building to full strength in the last third. The large band comes off easy, I was a bit worried at first but it was no problem. Total burn time was right at an hour. This is a very enjoyable smoke.
