This is a pre-release being announced at IPCPR 2013 in Vegas this weekend. It is also my first J Fuego cigar. The wrapper is a creamy medium brown with prominent leaf lines. The initial smell took me off guard, it had a musty spicy odor. I didn’t find it to be appealing at all. I do like the bands on this cigar. Very classic look, yellow with gold lettering on a black background. Extra band on the foot with company stamp. Cold draw had a salty and spicy taste to it.
Overall a smooth cigar with some interesting flavor choices. Definitely a cigar that will give you a different experience from most of your usual’s. Once released I do suggest trying this one out.
