Cigar

Welcome to this weeks review of the Mason Dixon Project – North made by Mike and Jon at The Crowned heads. This was released as a North and a South with the South having an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper while the North has the Connecticut Broadleaf. MSRP for these sticks is $9.75 and they are made at the My Father Cigar Factory.

Starting off this Mason Dixon Project – North with a bit of sweet hay and wood up front and surprisingly no spice/pepper blast. Burning well so far. Picking up some bittersweet chocolate around the third mark. Bittersweet chocolate has been the name of the game for the second third. Slight spice and wood but nothing really prominent. Ash just falls off for no reason but that is my only complaint so far. Got pretty bitter towards the end but I really enjoyed the middle. Not much flavor change throughout once the bittersweet chocolate came into play. Really wish there would have been more flavor changes to this cigar as it did taste good but was a little plain.

Wrap-Up

Would I buy it again? Maybe but probably not a box unless I wanted to age them as it wouldn’t be a daily smoke for me plus the flavor profile was pretty one dimensional. I am really curious if age will effect that at all and let other flavors come out over the dominant bittersweet chocolate.
