El Güegüense Churchill: the cold draw releases scents of earth and spices. The opening confirms the spices, with rich peppery notes.

The first third delivers a broad flavor profile, consisting of nuts (first hazelnut and then walnut), earth, cocoa, and spices, among which black pepper stands out. The strength is a little above the medium (3.5/5).

In the central section, the flavor profile is confirmed. The spices are less powerful in this third, which is more elegant and creamy. Strength doesn’t change (3.5/5).

The final part of the smoke is all about earth and black pepper, enriched with balsamic herbs. Strength, once again, doesn’t change (3.5/5), and the finale, as the whole smoke, is well balanced.

Overall, the El Güegüense Churchill delivers an intense and fulfilling smoke. The balance is excellent from the first to the last puff. Compared to the other cigars belonging to the El Güegüense line, the Churchill size is the one with the least strength.
