This is a dark brown cigar and well made. The cigar is triple capped. This cigar was debuted at this year's IPCPR. Some had called this Pete Johnson's best creation. Pete's cigars are made at the My Father Cigar Factory in Esteli, Nicaragua.

The test draw was effortless. The initial flavors are a ton of black pepper. There are subtle sweet notes and espresso notes. There are some cinnamon notes and roasted almond notes. There are no citrus notes at his point. The cigar burns very evenly. The finish is rather short with roasted almonds and pepper.

About 2 1/2 inches in the flavors were cinnamon and light vanilla notes. There is a hint of orange citrus but just a hint. The pepper is overwhelming. It is the main flavor and it's hard to get past it to define any other flavors. The finish is one of vanilla and it is getting longer. The almond notes have pretty much disappeared. The cigar is very full bodied.

At the point where I removed the band the cigar has not had any significant changes. After  having several of  Pete's cigars I found this cigar to be among the most peppery. The finish is definitely vanilla at this point.

At the end of the cigar I wrapped it up like this; this cigar is quite peppery. The main flavors are black pepper, cinnamon and vanilla.  The finish is one of vanilla and pepper.  I did not find this cigar to be Pete's best but it is a good cigar. Tatuaje lovers should like this cigar.

Score: 89
