Fallen Angel - Cigar Review Redux

AJ Fernandez
Fallen Angel
Double Toro 660 Box-press
NOTES:
I
Top to bottom, gentlepersons: Creamy lower-percentage cacao dark chocolate with neat vanilla zetz therein. Black pepper sauteed in buttah, a separate chili pepper thing. Mulling spice. Avocado honey. Wine cask fulla pipe 'baccy. Mixed nuts with floral lilting. Loose-side of medium draw, a slight curvature to a tick hastened burn.

II
Nit-pickery re: performance aside, this Fallen Angel operates quite admirably for a fat thing. Its size ain't a jawbreaker either, thanks to a solidly holding box-press. Cuban coffee pours in, as doth do a certain herbal quality. Chocolate gains a malt attachment. Alfalfa and mushroom enter into the vegetal scheme. 

III
Retro-hale gets a rising cinnamon and new red pepper flake. Notes get sweetened by a syrupy molasses and braced by a flexing rich tobacco. Burn-line hath done nothing but self-correct throughout to now a neat-o nigh razor. Draw gets a nice amount of tension, as nub stays firm and cool.
