Vegas de Santiago D8 Short Salomones

Vegas de Santiago D8 Short Salomones: wood aromas are perceivable to the cold draw. First few puffs delivers notes of hay and wood.

Vegas de Santiago D8 Short Salomones

In the first section, the woody aroma is the main one, followed by hints of leather and a touch of earth. Strength is medium (3/5).

The central part of the cigar doesn’t show any change, nor in terms of flavor profile nor in strength (3/5). Wood is still the main aroma. Despite the construction is good and cigar burns perfectly, the lack of evolution makes it difficult to stay focused on the smoke.

The flavor profile stays the same also in the final part. Wood is the undefeated protagonist, accompanied by earth (now a bit more present) and leather. Even the strength does not change till the end.

Overall, the Vegas de Santiago D8 Short Salomones is a well constructed cigar but considering its size, the evolution is rather contained and you get to expect more from a format like this. The cigar is well balanced and harmonious but it get a bit boring starting from the second half, due to fact the aromas does not change.
