Flor De Gonzalez "Qban" Belicoso Review

Flor De Gonzalez "Qban" Belicoso - 6 X 52. Wrapper - Ecuadorian Maduro Habano, Binder - Nicaragua, Filler - Nicaragua. Full bodied.

Initial lighting taste - Dry cedar and spice.

First third - Strong spice, sweet molasses, Earth and cinnamon.

Second third - Strong spiciness continues, molasses, Earthiness and cinnamon.

Last third - Spice, sweet molasses, Earth and cinnamon. Very nice long finish of spice, Earth and cinnamon.

Construction - Beautiful dark-brown wrapper with no major veins and a smooth, oily texture. No soft spots. Burn was razor sharp producing a solid white colored ash that would not fall off. Draw was perfect with just the right amount of smoke.

A fantastic full bodied cigar with plenty of complexity and excellent balance. Tons of flavor and a long finish that coats the palate. I loved the sweet molasses flavor offset by the strong spiciness and Earthiness. Definitely a cigar best enjoyed after a full meal. MSRP for this size is $7.50 which this cigar is more than worth. Very highly recommended.
