Extra quality. Blade sharp burn, holds ash well, smoke rich. Taste to me earthy, nutty flavour throughout with minimal pepper in the background. The thirds are not sharply defined, but the flavour holds through to the end. No flavours intrude at the expense of the rest. A good 1-1.5 hour experience. I try to play around with the drink pairing in the evening when the kids are in bed. Prosecco is thin with it, but a good rum or whisky is perfect, and a thick Tokay aszú is a good partner. Quite close to the Cuban flavours. It’s something to be proud of.
