Default 262 ideology churchill

This isn't my first time smoking this particular cigar, i'm normally wary of new, small companies as previous experience has shown that they are not worth the price. However 262 is making me rethink this. this is not my first Ideogy, however it is my first churchhill, the other two have been robustos

Wrapper: Nicaraguan Habano Rosado (Jalapa)

Binder: Nicaraguan (Jalapa)

Filler: Nicaraguan Ligero, Mexican Ligero (San Andreas), Dominican Republic Viso (Piloto Cubano)

Strength: Mild

Pre-light:
forgot to do this, was too excited to smoke it. however the wrapper is a beautiful vainy milky coffee color and the draw is just bang on.

First 1/4th:
Mild, with hints of subtle nuttyness and some muted spice notes. getting further into the cigar the same notes remain dancing around my tongue.

second 1/4th:
there's new taste on the finish that i just can't place, it started just after the first ash and it is a very pleasant taste but i just can't figure out what it is exactly. It's a pleasant taste that lends more excitement to the cigar...almost like a nutty toasted marshmallow

third 1/4:
a new flavor has joined the mix, replacing the toasted marshmallow, a smokey citrus flavor which is a very nice change. the ash holds on nicely and the cigar produces a wonderful amount of smoke

last 1/4:
nothing new to report but good god in the goose fat what a cigar.

Now I'm no fan of mild cigars as a rule but this cigar is a phenomenal first smoke of the day. I put flame to this cigar around 1530 and was my first smoke of the day and i'm enjoying this cigar just as much as i was having the 262 paradigm or a bowl of escudo. I really really like this line and this brand.

Overlooked and underrated. The Paradigms are very good cigars.

Thanks for the great review. I was a skeptic when we released a mild cigar as I am not a fan. It is wonderful to find a mild cigar with actual flavor though. The feedback has been fantastic. We have some exciting news coming later this year. I will keep you all informed.
