Tasting Notes: Fonseca Delicia

So I’m back with yet another Cuban cigar review. I know it’s been all freaky-sex, all the time around here lately, but the reality is, I don’t smoke many cigars during the winter in Canada. Now that we are firmly into the spring, I can justify stepping out for a good forty-five minute herf without having to worry about frostbite…

But of course being a 24/7 BDSM freak colours all now, so the impetus for purchasing this stick really came from a multi-day stretch of Top Drop, and nothing chills me out quite like a habanos. So a nice leisurely walk to the local brick&mortar shop was just what the doctor ordered for some much needed self-care…

The cigar is a Fonseca Delicia, a petit-Corona format from this smaller, yet still firmly established marca. The cigar came presented in a Japanese paper wrapping, a tradition harkening back to the early 1900’s history of the brand. It was also fairly easy on the pocketbook considering it is a fully hand-made whole leaf long-fill masterpiece…

The aroma as I set out with the initial toast was unsurprisingly of toasted Cuban-tobacco, a much welcome aroma nonetheless, since I very nearly experience sexual arousal at the combination of the scents of Cuban tobacco and Spanish cedar. The first third was delightfully woody, with a hint of dry hay…

The second third began to get a little interesting, still firmly in the mild-strength camp, but a sweetness began to emerge, first presenting as a coffee with milk vibe which very much lived up its delicious name…

The final third never quite brought on much in the way of strength, but the sweetness underwent a change, from milk to raw golden sugar to full on cream-bomb. I smoked it down to the nubbiest of nubs..All in all, a short, satisfying, and not overly complex smoke. Too mild for my taste, but a solid beginner Cuban…
