At first sight, the opulence of the cigar is enhanced by a shiny Colorado Maduro wrapper. more than excellent rolled cigar.
HR Signature A: unlit, a strong note of hazelnut reaches the nose. Once lit up, it delivers hazelnut and hints of wood and cocoa.
The beginning of the first third is rather salty, with a light sweet character that enriches the bouquet. Strength is medium (3/5).
Strength doesn’t change (3/5).
In the last third, the sweetness increases, becoming equal to the saltiness. Strength increases slightly, reaching the medium-full level (4/5).
Overall, the HR Signature A is a very interesting product, lasted 3 hours and 10 minutes. Despite its length, it manages to capture the smoker’s attention with its elegance, aromatic intensity and interesting flavor profile, especially from the second half onward. If there is one “negative” point, is that during the last third the smoke becomes a little bit dry, but it is nothing that can not be mitigated with a glass of water.
A classy cigar!
