This is a well constructed cigar with a single cap and minimal veins. It has a very smooth chocolate color wrapper with a leathery texture, an an aromatic hint of cedar. According to the Valeroso Cigars website (www.valerosocigars.com) “The first line of Valeroso Cigars is "Primavera" and is available in eight different sizes ranging from medium to medium-full. With a three county blend from Dominican, Nicaragua and Ecuador the cigars are incredibly flavorful and complex. Every size is blended differently to give each cigar it's own unique flavor profile. Our cigars are so smooth you will want to smoke them to the nub”.

Right away once lit, the cigar puts out a phenomenal amount of smoke, the draw is easy, with slight resistance. The creamy flavor smoke has a long finish and reminds me of nutmeg and raisins. The burn is not razor sharp but does not need any attention. In the second third, the flavor intensity has not only increased but the flavor profile now reminds me of nuts and bitter chocolate. Also the smoke aroma itself is very pleasant and gives off a nice aroma of cedar. In the last third the flavor profile has not changed and the performance of the cigar was excellent.

Overall, I enjoyed this cigar, the flavor profile was unique and enjoyable. I would rate this cigar 4 out 5.
