Sindicato Affinity

Sindicato Affinity

CIGAR

Today I am taking a look at the Sindicato Affinty cigar. This will be the third out of four cigars they produce so you may see the fourth in the near future. This is the toro size which is 6×54.

Thanx to Brian Hewitt for the above image as my sd card went POOF and I have not been able to recover anything from it yet. That is the reason for no pictures in the video also.

Pre-Light

Starting out with this Reunion Digestivo and there is barnyard scent from foot and wrapper while a hay taste on the cold draw.
