Quick Smoke: Tesa Shaman No. 44

22 Mar 2009

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief take on a single cigar.

This little cigar (4 x44) features a rustic Brazilian Arapiraca wrapper around Nicaraguan and “proprietary” filler. It starts mild-bodied with cocoa and grass flavors and had a noticeably dry finish throughout. As the smoke progressed it settled into a mild-medium profile with a nutty flavor overtaking the grassiness. While the draw was a touch firm, the rest of the construction was flawless. All around, this is a solid smoke worth picking up.

Verdict = Buy.
