Initial: Dark wrapper. Visible veins. Smells like bittersweet cocoa. Got this from Ben, thanks! Drinking Bourbon.
5 min: Bitter Cocoa flavor is the best i’m getting off this, also mixed in is “burning pile of weeds”. Slightly mouth drying.
10 min: Very stiff ash. Ehh, flavor is the same.
30 min: 2″ gone. One dimensional. Still bitter.
45 min: ehhh, I hate to do a bad review of a cigar. But this one is gonna get one, It’s just not enjoyable to me. It smokes fine…nice burn, but tastes bitter.
60 min: Burning plastic flavor. Fuck this. I’m done. 4″ remain.
Final: I’ve liked other Ortegas in the past. I expected more and it didn’t deliver. Did make my hands and smoking room smell of burning weeds and plastic, and trashed my mouth for the next cigar… thanks. 1 ring.
