A handsome devil. Or maybe that's just my reflection....heck, both!
Sam Leccia White is delivered to your hands sporting a glossy white band and box, it's quite snazzy mind you. But inside is no doubt where the smiles truly begin. Each cigar is crafted using a feisty African sun-grown wrapper, responsible for the sweet, cedary aspect (more on this later). Tucked just beneath this high-priming leaf, awaits an Ecuadorian binder along with a potent cocktail of long-fillers. Nicaraguan Ligero is paired with seco from the Dominican and Pennsylvania, adding strength as well as characteristics of coffee, earth and leather. Before you light it, do yourself a favor and sniff. Glorious. After lighting (here comes the part I spoke about before), the marrying of the filler and wrapper is spot on. A wonderful cedary sweetness joins forces with hearty, nutty, coffee-esque undertones before a dash of pepper enters the fray. The burn is even, the construction is top-notch, and the taste....well if I could give it a high-five I would. It's no doubt a charismatic sucker. And as they say, when you got it, flaunt it.
