    Why Yes, I've Had That...

    In fact I'm burning my first one as we speak. Rich, dark cocoa and leather right now. Draw and construction are perfect...smokes like a home run...

    I've had that!

    First, thank you to Philip over at the Cigar Dojo for gifting me with some Luchadores.

    Ok, wow. The wrapper has a dark chocolate color, it also seems like they were sprinkled with tiny crumbs of salt because this leaf has got some serious tooth action. It is truly beautiful!
    The dominant note for this Luchador is earth and soils, at this point in the early aging stages, the smoke has a very oily presence in the palate. This Luchador also has sweetness through out the smoke, it is not very like "Hey, I'm a sweet Nutella chocolate", but more like, "Hey, I am a subtle sweetness, and I am here not to bother your sweet spots". This Luchador loves a good fight, because as you smoke it, the flavors are in swirling all around your palate, it is complex and it is definitely Sam's entry into full body. As you get closer to the mask, the Luchador has not given up, he does not want you to win, after all No Luchador wants to be embarrassed by removing its own mask. Right before the mask the flavors come in angry mode; spicy, meaty, and each blow is creamy. Construction is flawless.

    El Hombre eventually lost the fight, all that was left was his nipple tail and a heap of ash. Incredible cigar that really pushes Sam's creation while using five different tobaccos.

    I've had that! And loved that! Five tobaccos make this cigar one of this best smorgasbords of varying flavor! Is it a punch? A right hook? Or perhaps a body slam. No matter because from start to finish its a true Luchadore!
