DiFazio Cigars Barroco "Inmenso" Review
DiFazio Cigars Barroco "Inmenso" - 6 X 60. Wrapper - Nicaragua (Habano Claro), Binder - Nicaragua, Filler - Nicaragua. Medium bodied.
Initial lighting taste - Cedar spice.
First third - Spice with cedar wood and an Earthy quality emerging.
Second third - Spice continues with cedar and Earthiness. Smooth and very well balanced.
Last third - Spice, cedar and the Earthiness, some cinnamon notes as well. Long finish of spice and Earthiness.
Construction - Beautiful chocolate brown wrapper with a silky smooth texture. No major veins were visible. Burn was razor sharp with a solid, white-colored ash that held on inches at a time. Draw was very good with a good amount of smoke produced.
A superb cigar with good complexity and excellent balance. I found the cedar along with the earthiness to be a very nice combination in a flavor profile that I do not experience too often. MSRP is $11.00 for this vitola. A perfect cigar for anytime in the day - especially a crisp fall afternoon or evening.
