Balmoral Añejo XO Oscuro Rothschild Masivo

OK, how can anything be bad with a Mexican San Andrés wrapper? I know, a bit of an over-the-top comment to make, but to look at this Balmoral Añejo XO Oscuro, Yesterday’s Dream Cigar; it’s beautiful. I’ve been waiting since last October to get reacquainted with this cigar again.

Añejo XO Oscuro, Balmoral Cigars, Mexico San Andres, Robusto, Rothschild MasivoMy pre-light straight-cut cold draw sent me notes of dry cocoa with the correct amount of resistance.
Once lit, tons of full rich earthy smoke comes forth; there’s a hint of something that tastes like mushrooms or black olives in there somewhere too. #SakamotoHappy, I’m smiling, these are the flavors and cigar experience that I remember.

At the last third the flavors have ramped up and smoothed out along with the strength; I can feel my cheeks are starting to sweat.

Time to order some lunch.

Stay Chill
Stay Smoky
