[ From Fuerte y Libre Cigars ]The dark San Andrés wrapper and double ligero provide a little bite, even on the cold draw. At first light, you’ll still be tasting the spice and earth from the wrapper on your tongue while the heavy, cool smoke is carrying coffee, earth, leather and, interestingly, some grassy field notes that fill your mouth with a reminder of what San Andrés stands for. As you work into the first third, the grassy field immediately fades and the heartiness of this blend shines through. These flavors will build as you burn towards the second third to increase the body of the cigar to its full potential. If strong cigars make you sweat, you’ll be feeling it about now. There is a refined power in the background as the final third starts, which shows itself as calm and yet dominant. If you are a bourbon fan lean towards a cask strength or Rye as nothing else can stand up to this medium/full-strength bull.
