This cigar begins medium-full with cedar, walnuts and a bit of that Dr. Pepper sweetness, a distinct sweet cherry flavor. It settles into a somewhat familiar pattern: a dry semisweet cocoa joined by orange, bark, creaminess and a red pepper.
The first draws after toasting the foot produce copious amounts of smoke layered with flavor.   Cedar and dried fruit begin the profile, finishing with a honey sweetness.

The Last Tsar
Available only during the event!  The Last Tsar has a base of cedar and barnyard with cocoa and pepper around it. There& rsquo s a big vanilla bean flavor on the finish.  It becomes creamier in the middle portions of the cigar. The cedar and barnyard are still a core flavor, but nuttiness and cocoa have caused the profile to seem milder.  This cigar is chock-full of delicious flavors of cedar, cocoa, and pepper.
The first 10 puff& rsquo s deliver flavors in three parts. The first a little bit of pepper tickles on the retro-hale, next a tangy sweetness washes over the palate and lastly some earthy minerality lingers on the aftertaste.
