Big Sky Cigars Bighorn in Review

“Have you Kaplowitz’d to-day?”

Big Sky Cigars Bighorn

BINDER: Nicaraguan
FILLER: Nicaraguan

FORMAT: Torpedo (652)
ORIGIN: Nicaragua
STRENGTH: Medium-Full



Big produce section peppers, jalapeno. Lots of brackish vegetal stuff back behind that. Grassy till the mid-point. Quite musty & sharp. Black pepper, almond extract. Middlings are a mocha melange and some fresh-cut hardwood. There are Doritos crumbs thru the retro-hale, then buckwheat honey. That's nice, but also rough-edged.

Underbelly is a simple compost, rather dryly. The support-strength of that stage tends to fluctuate. Finish is short-lived and tastes of the retro, a second high-spot altho it is fleeting. At the 1/2, red wine flows in big, then ebbs right out. Complex, albeit moderately at best and in a hectic manner. Notes fail to dig deep 'nuff to form nuances. Mainly wobbly imbalanced.

Erratic smoke out-put fluctuates 'tween bomb & whisp. Some draws are empty, hesitant. These bits add to its helter-skelter vibe. Ash does grow long & dense-silver. Much softening of pack up by cap occurs and the stick smokes quite warmly. Even burn-line. An elevator operator doesn't experience more ups & downs. To top it off, nicotine lifts off in the weeeeee! 3/3.
