The cigar is looking good, with a rather refined appearance. Its long shape, its uniform creamy chocolate wrapper and the oil sheen on its surface are a delight to the eyes. To the touch, the Fundadores is smooth, it has minimal veining, and it is rolled and filled to the perfection, not overfilled, not underfilled. To top it all, the cap is beautiful and the seams are invisible.
Before lighting up
The cold aroma coming off the wrapper smells is sweet. There is mainly some cedar aroma, due to the extra sheets of cedar used as separators. There is also some spice characteristics. Once the cap is cut, the draw at cold is smooth and has some spicy flavors (black pepper), and also some dried fruits (black cherry), in addition to some woody aromas.
Lighting up the cigar is effortless and the burn is excellent. Right away there is tons of smoke upon the first draw. The first flavors to reach the palate are of dark and intense flavors: leather and black coffee, mixed up with some vegetal character (dark tea), that marry beautifully with some toasted tobacco. In the background, there are some sweet notes of cookies and of fruits. There is also a good amount of black pepper, and some earthiness developing early on. The smoke is very aromatic and smooth. The draw remains smooth all along, while the burn doesn’t require any attention. A perfect construction.
