I visited my local cigar bar @foxcigars and tried out their newest addition per the suggestion of the staff. The smell is light and woodsy, kind of smells like a camp fire. The wrapper has a dark caramel complexion to it with defined lines. The band is simple but effective. Logo, company name, and edition of the cigar. What stands out is the typeface though, nice and bold.

Leccia Tobacco smoked

First puffs– Right away I get a strong oak flavor with spice undertones, along with the taste like I’m at a campfire. This is most likely from the “Dark-Fire” tobaccos. The draw is a little bit tight and it’s a little low on the smoke. I’ve paired this with a Glenlivet 18yr, this gives an amazing flavor shift to my palette, great combo.
First third– There is a slight pepper and I’m getting a nice mellow oak flavor now, very steadily. Draw has gotten better and the ash is hanging strong.
Second third– The flavors are a mix between oak and pepper, although its got a creamy taste to it now. I also taste a deep rich tobacco as well.
Final third– More of the same. Consistently good though. I smoked this down to the end.

Overall a great solid cigar with a classic woodsy flavor to it. The “Dark-Fire” does kick it up a notch and gives it a bolder flavor. If you are looking for a new cigar to try, I would say go for it. It won’t blow you away but it is tasty and a great smoke.
