Andalusian Bull by La Flor Dominicana

From the old-school shape from a long-since-retired cigar mold that Litto Gomez tracked down in Belgium. Coming in one size only, a rustic-looking Figurado, this gem takes you back to the golden age of cigars. (from Cigar Aficionado)

I was waiting with great anticipation to try this cigar with my new awareness of my palate and returned experience.

This is a very majestic cigar at 6-1/2 inches and a ring gauge at the foot of 64. I carefully snipped the cap about a quarter of an inch that ended up giving a tight draw and delivering less than the amount of smoke I was looking for, but I’ll deal with it and see… I smoke on…

So what; Nothing too impressive at the start.

The usual EarthWoodLeather start to appear in the middle of the first third after this “Bull” has warmed up. A couple of touch ups along the way to help the burn. I didn’t want to chance any wonky burns later on.

I continue to pay attention; Halfway through I snipped off another quarter inch off the cap because I was struggling to get my mouthful of smoke that I deserved…

Hmmm, Malty; I’m happy now. Let’s see what else develops.

Someone walked into the cigar lounge after bathing in cologne … Uggggh

This cigar chugs along just fine and dandy and then at the last third, she speaks to me with ramped up flavor and complexity. Nice! #SakamotoHappy!

This morning’s Instagram post I titled this “Fact or Fiction”; what all the fuss about Fellas? I have another Andalusian Bull that I think I’ll lay down for a few months and see if there will be a difference.
