La Barba Purple Gordo: very light scents of wood are perceivable to the cold draw. First few puffs are mainly earthy, but still on a mild side.
Overall, the La Barba Purple Gordo, delivers a very mild smoke, in terms of both strength and intensity. Considering the big size of this cigar, and so its smoking time, it ends up being rather boring.
