La Vieja Habana Fumas from Drew Estates.

Bombero 6 x 50

Wrapper: Cuban seed Nicaraguan grown Corojo

Binder: Nicaraguan

Filler: Nicaraguan


Pre light smell is a classic tobacco smell. If you have ever been I a tobacco barn this is how it smells. Uncut taste is light with a hint of sweet. Cut with a punch. The draw has some resistance but in a good way. Taste is chocolate and maybe coffee.


First few puffs are very sweet chocolate coffee with a slightly bitter aftertaste.


At 1 inch or so the first ash fell. The chocolate taste is gone now it is just a nutty sweet coffee thing going on. The coffee is now in the aftertaste. The burn is good so far and the draw is getting lighter.


At the half way point there is more of the same. The bitter after taste is becoming more earthy than bitter and the draw is back to where it should be.


2 inches left. Coffee is becoming stronger. Burn is still ok. Very nice taste overall. The after taste isn’t as good but not bad.


The last few puffs are getting warm and are bringing a tiny bit of harshness.


Burn time: 1h 20 min


Burn: 9

Draw: 9

Taste: 9

Aftertaste: 8

Construction: 8

Appearance: 8


Overall: 8.5
