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