With my wife and friends, having drinks and smoking cigars in a lounge on a Saturday evening.

My first cigar was done, and I was ready to light a second one. I walked in the humidor and spent a good ten minutes there. I had no idea what I wanted other than I felt like smoking something new. I looked around. One of the shop owners was there trying to help me by showing me the new arrivals, but I wasn’t in the mood to try something too new or too fancy. Then I spotted the Bellas Artes Maduro Toro and picked it up.

“This looks good. A brand by A.J. Fernandez? Never tried it. I’ll give it a try now.”

Branding: Shiny and classy. Impressive name.

Construction: No weak spots. Very well done.

Pre-light: I got notes of sugar cane, Arabic coffee, and vanilla.

Cut: Straight cut.

Burn: Even throughout. Never went off.

Duration: 90 minutes.

Draw: Good, but a little firm.

Smoke: Good, but it wasn’t generous until the second half.

Ash: Beautiful.

Flavor: Notes of earth, sugar cane, light roast coffee, and black pepper.
