Binder: Nicaraguan Corojo '99
Filler: Dominican and Nicaraguan

The cigar is dense and well made. There is a lot of tobacco packed into this cigar.

The test draw after cutting the cap was very good. The initial flavors took awhile to pin down but they were sweet cedar, black licorice, earth, dry wood, and white pepper rated at a 7. The finish is dry wood and a touch of cream and some lingering white pepper.

One inch into The Inch the licorice flavors have gone away. What you are left with is a sweet cedar with some citrus influence which gives the cigar a twang and dry oak. The finish is a oaky cream. The cream notes improved at this point. The cigar is medium bodied. 

Around the midpoint the cigar is consistent. You have the same flavors and strength. Nothing has really changed; sweet cedar and citrus, and a lot of dry oak.

This has been a very consistent cigar. It really did not change after the first inch other than the cigar hit medium to full bodied status about 3/4 the way through. This has been a good, solid cigar. I did not find anything outstanding about the cigar but it was quite good. A nice addition to the Inch series.

Score: 89
