Southern Draw Firethorn Rosado

Lancero, check. Milk chocolate, check. Bursts of cinnamon, check. Rich roasted coffee, check. This is a fantastic cigar that can be enjoyed any time of day. It started off great and just kept getting better and better and better. During the second sample I even got shat on by a bird, and this cigar was so enjoyable it didn't even matter (it's true, and it actually happened twice but I'll leave those details for my upcoming book, "Cigars are Brown, Bird Poop is White"). If you enjoy lanceros and chocolate, cinnamon forward flavors give this one a try.
