Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust Todos Las Dias - Cigar Review

Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust Todos Las Dias
Short Churchill 4 3/4x48
Begins with a mouth-feel a' ground glass and razor-blades. Calms into a nic-bomb that has me schvitzing on a rainy October porch. Twixt them niceties 'tis a smorgasbord of brilliantly delineated peppers. Chili, red flake'd. cayenne, black, bell, jalapeno. A hardwood bracing. Well-rolled, but a noticeable pack softening upon heating.

Packing re-firms. Razor burn-line and ash looks to grow all-day. Wood comes closer to front, then passes peppers. Still piquant as heck. Espresso. Baking then semi-sweet chocolate. Latakia 'baccy. Compost under-belly, molasses lilt. Excellent draw and lotsa active/resting smoke. Potpourri-citrus essence at far end of long spicy/sweet finish.

Compost nethers envelope over-top. Chocolate seems gone. Espresso dials-back. Wood and Latakia form core with neat complexities. Mouth-feel dries a tick and tongue tingles two. Pacing slows and a bit of capa lags; self-corrects. Profile darkens. More nicotine. I feel my hair growing. I fasten my seat-belt. Cool/firm nubbing.
