    Default Bobalu Black Label

    Bobalu Cameroon Maduro - Black Label

    Wrapper: Cameroon (Bobalu's keeping the origin of the wrappers a secret!?)
    Filler: Dominican
    Binder: Dominican
    Vitola: Corona
    Draw: good medium draw
    Construction: fabulous

    Drink: Coffee


    Pre-light is musky and the Cameroon wrapper smells deliciously caramelized and nutty.

    Very smooth and creamy... from the first hit this one kicks in with creaminess,
    rich tobacco flavor, nuttiness and milk chocolate. There is a certain "bite" in a good way to this smoke.
    Definitely not harsh or amything... I had it with my morning coffee. Of course it is not a MILD smoke either.
    I call this a rich medium. This smoke is delicious. It is leaving JUST ENOUGH tongue tingle behind. Acidic smoke but not heavily so. The tobacco flavor is phenomenal. I taste everything you can think of... wood, nuts, chocolate, leather, tobacco.... yummy smoke gentlemen.

    Good amount of smoke coming from this size cigar. This is just plain ol' delicious.

    We can hang out at Bobalu's and have a cuban espresso and a fresh roll!
    HERF @ Bobalu's! Right on 6th street too.
    Hell, they may even have some of the Pre-embaro 1959's left.

    Looks like a great stick to me too. I have yet to have a fresh rolled cigar, I am hoping to experience that sometime in the future.
    Just another day at the office!
