This review is going to be a He Said/ She Said, since we both smoked the Java Mint.
This Drew Estate, Rocky Patel concoction is the Java Mint. When I opened the wrapper and took a whiff, it smelled just like an Andes chocolate mint after dinner candy. When lit, you get the scent of cocoa and coffee.
I used a punch on the square cap, and the draw was very easy all the way through.The first 1/3 of the cigar remains sweet and tingles in your mouth as if you just ate a butter mint. It is a sparkly, tingly feeling that lasts. The second 1/3 of it turns more rich and looses it’s sweetness, but you still get the tingle of mint, without a lot of the mint flavor.
This cigar is definitely on my new favorites list.
