Cigar review: Great review of the Isabela Serpentine by the seasoned cigar smoker, Cedric Bennett. Cedric was a winner of the three pack giveaway hosted by UrbanfishingpoleCigars.com
Good evening! I did a review on IsabelaSerpentine. It is extremely limited and rolled by 1 of 4 master Cubans. Whenever I do decide to do a review I smoke them really slow and the reason I do is to allow it to not over heat during my tasting so this way I get to taste the full flavor. All of my flavor notes are experienced via retro-hale and smelling the smoke from the tobacco. I always use a soft flame (bic lighter or matches). No extreme heat this way I can taste the initial flavors. So with that being said here is my personal experience of the Isabela Serpentine.
Time: 1 hour and 35 minutes
Length: 6 inches
Wrapper: Ecuadorian DeFlorada Connecticut and Ecuadorian Habano Maduro
Binder: Nicaraguan Tiempo
Blender: Vicente Ortiz
Ashes: Long firm ashes
Cold Draw: Tip is sweet, notes of fruits, caramel and earthy tobacco
Aroma: Earthy notes, woody, herbal, and tropical fruits
Complexity: 8 (based on a scale 1-10)

1st segment: Sweet vannila with caramel notes and tropical fruit
2nd segment: Sweet vanilla with light hints of caramel and spicy pepper. Nutty notes on the retro
3rd segment: Habenero spicy with notes of fruity ness.
Additional observation: this cigar is an nicotine rush.
I would rate this an easy 93.
It’s a must try if you haven’t had this.
