Keep smoking

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 

Vitola: Torpedo

Length: 6 inches

Wrapper: Ecuadorian DeFlorada Connecticut and Ecuadorian Habano Maduro

Binder: Nicaraguan Tiempo

Filler: Nicaragua

Blender: Vicente Ortiz

Price: $8.95

Burn: Sharpness

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)

Strength: Medium Body, Med-Full strength 

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.
