Martinez Cigars Flatiron #2 - Cigar Review

Martinez Cigars
Flatiron #2 652 Box-press Torpedo
NOTES:
Leathery over-top suede a-top sunny dirt, with mounting honey citrus maltiness. Mulling spice piquancy with dashes of white pepper. Cedar sharpens through the nose. Something like a mild mocha latte hithers and thithers. Quite creamy. Draw saturates admirably. Seams hold nigh invisibly. Char requires a dos re-touchos. Smooth hand/mouf.
