Warped El Oso Blanco

Not a particularly attractive wrapper with loose seams, twists, and pinches on the body; however, the cigar has a nice firm pack with a little toothiness on the wrapper. The best part of the experience was the even burn and ample smoke production. Not a bad cigar by any means but nothing that makes me think, "wow!"

On the light: earth, cedar, wood. Black pepper on the retrohale. Lots of smoke. Cedar, nuts, and a creamy but short finish. The black pepper increases in the retrohale with cedar in the background. Good burn line, fixing any waviness on its own. Thick mascara line.

Bitter cocoa powder, nuts, and cedar in the background. Cedar and white pepper on the retrohale. Burn is great along with ample smoke production and a slight cream on the finish.

Cedar, nuts, bitter cocoa. Light pepper on the retrohale. The biggest change from the second third is a transition into a dryer, dustier smoke texture.
