Jonathan Drew is a creative force, formulating some of the industry's most innovative cigars. His inspiration for the 'Copper Label' was a fusion of ACID, Natural, and traditional blends....and he nailed it. Hugged by a beautiful Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper, this stunning handmade combines bold Nicaraguan long-fillers with a leaf of Dominican Piloto. These lush tobaccos have been carefully influenced by the delicious nuances of amaretto and hazelnut, completing a savory experience. After a sweet start, it coats the palate with loads of creamy smoke, offering a rich core of coffee flavors complemented by notes of hazelnut and pepper. Mellow to medium-bodied and oh-so-enjoyable.
Ok, gotta be honest, I'm new to smoking cigars so I'm trying out different brands, different strengths, some flavored, to see what my palate prefers. I can handle a full-bodied but mostly leave those to the hubby; I'm more of a mild-medium, medium type of girl. I'm a coffee lover who has come to enjoy a nice mild-medium coffee-infused cigar on a nice early Saturday morning with a streaming cup of coffee which is why I took right away to Drew Estate Tabak Especial & Isla del Sol. When I saw that Drew Estate was in the line-up with the CI Legends, I knew I had to give it a try. Verdict: SIMPLY DELICIOUS! It's smooth & creamy taste was consistent from beginning to end. The draw was easy, the ash held its own even with a gentle tap here & there & not once did I have to relight! I found myself taking my time, savoring each draw & relishing each taste of hazelnut, vanilla & sweet cream. Will definitely add this to the rotation for my Saturday morning ritual. Magnificent!!
