Don Javier Mendoza Cahuita Cañonazo (150mm, 5 7/8″ x 52). Beautiful wrapper, just quite fine veins, medium weight. Cold draw is milk chocolate, smoke after ignition is sensational! The roll is tight but perfect! The ash is beautiful, light grey. Cold smoke, mainly cedar in the first third. Towards the end of the first third, the pepper gets a little stronger, especially in the retrohale, but it's not at all intrusive, just enough to bring in the toasted seeds. The ash is incredibly stable. In the second third, the pepper softens, no particular change. Slight hay on the cedar, the burn, the ash, the smell is still perfect! Medium strength, medium body, no unpleasant nicotine. The cedar dominates the third third. The toasted seeds are just in the background, but very pleasant! The smoke is still cool, dry, no heat, no softening on the body. Towards the end it intensifies, quality tobacco flavour, the cedar remains, the seeds and pepper have almost completely disappeared. I really liked it!
