Default Prometheous "Angelinos"

So I tried searching for any kind of information about these cigars online but couldn't find anything.These cigars are made at the Fuente factory. From what I can remember, these cigars comes in 4 sizes, and they are pretty limited. They were made to celebrate the city of Los Angeles. So, I'm not sure if they are Arturo Fuente cigars or something else.



The vitola I decided to go with was a toro, this cigar had a very boring,
generic band, nothing that was appealing to the eyes. The cigar sported a very nice golden brown Ecuadoran wrapper, with a Dominican filler and binder. The wrapper was very smooth with little oils and hardly any veins. Bit the cap off and here comes the light.

First Half



With the first take on this cigar, I was able to get tons of smoke, very nice easy draw. Very smooth through the nose. I picked up on a hint of light coffee with a bit of sweetness. Not my typical smoke but who knows, this may be good. After about 10 minutes into it, I am beginning to pick up a slight hint of cinnamon through the nose exhale.


2nd Half



As I begin the second half, I am hoping that this cigar starts to pick up. The draw continues to be very smooth and giving. The flavors are of a typical light smoke. Flavors such as cream and cinnamon are dominating this cigar. Leaves the tip of my tongue with almost a hint of citrus. Meanwhile, the burn is very even, not having to do any touch ups.

Conclusion



Mild in my opinion of a smoke. This is something I would smoke in the early morning or late night. It's a nice change of pace for me. Would I buy again? Most likely, because I need that change of pace once in awhile.
