Under that Leaf by Oscar leaf, you'll find a perfectly-rolled cigar with a lusciously oily wrapper. Look closely and you'll be hard-pressed to find many veins. Take a glance at the foot, tightly (but not too tightly as you'll see when you light up) and perfectly constructed Honduran long filler ready to surprise you again with rich flavor! All Leaf by Oscar cigars are handmade in Honduras, banded with organic bands, and wrapped in a tobacco leaf.
SUMATRA: The start to the Leaf by Oscar Sumatra started out with a mix of natural tobacco, white pepper with some background citrus notes. As the flavor profile developed, the primary flavors became a smooth natural tobacco with a slight milk chocolate component. The white pepper notes were a close secondary note while the citrus notes remained in the background. Meanwhile the retro-hale produced a combination of black and white pepper. The citrus notes will increase, joining the natural tobacco in the forefront. The milk chocolate notes diminish into the background joining the white pepper notes. There also was a doughy quality that surfaced in the background as well. Upon the finish, the flavors become more earthy.
CONNECTICUT: The start to the Leaf by Oscar Connecticut provides notes of pepper, citrus, and wood, shortly followed by some cream notes. The cream and wood notes become primary flavors early on. The pepper and citrus are secondary notes. The flavors switched up about midway through. The cream notes recede into the background joining the citrus. From this point, the wood seems to be a constant in the forefront while the citrus seems to be a constant in the background. The pepper and cream notes vary between being primary and secondary flavors. The flavor on the fine finish is more woody and peppery.
COROJO: The Leaf by Oscar Corojo is quite the flavorful cigar. The two most apparent flavors are floral tones and cayenne pepper. The sweet tones came in the form of a dark and robust toasted vanilla bean. A yeasty bread note added depth to the flavor profile and smoke characteristic alike. The bread gave the smoke a slightly chewy quality. Almond could also be detected which added a creamy texture to the smoke as well. Upon the finish, you will taste nutmeg and oak. The long finish was comprised of a syrupy vanilla bean, almond and oak , easily lasting between each draw.
MADURO: The Leaf by Oscar Maduro deliveres some notes of mocha and pepper right out of the gate. The pepper will be present throughout the smoking experience. You may also detect a honey-like sweetness in the background. The mocha notes remained in the forefront. Some earth notes mix in with the mocha in the forefront, followed by a slight increase in both the pepper and honey notes, but both of these flavors reamin in the background. By the last third, the pepper moves into the forefront joining the earth notes. The mocha recedes into the background joining the honey notes. This cigar will remain extremely flavorful until the end and will not exhibit harshness.
