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.

First puffs– There is a deep pepper flavor accompanied by a salty undertone. Kind of a harsh start. Draw is good and smoke production is great, nice and loose.

First third– The draw is fantastic on this cigar, really easy to smoke. The pepper has become subdued and there is a musty wood flavor. Not as bad as my initial smell led me to believe. There is also a sweet caramel like taste with a touch of salt as well.
Second third– Flavors have shifted a bit to more of a wood and spice flavor. Spices keep fading in and out. This is the first cigar I’ve had that contains a salty taste on my lips, it’s kind of odd at first, but adds to it nicely.

Final third– Not to much change except there is bit more sweetness. The real focus is ease of smoke here. The draw is fantastic and the smoke production is still great.


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.
