I have made it my duty that when every I am around Eddie to do my best to pick on and harass him, I don’t know why but its my calling. Tarazona cigar have been around for some time and fans of his cigars are devoted to the great woody and smoky blend. The new Revolution 305 carries a beautiful Ecuadorian Maduro wrapper that is nicely dark and has a hearty feel to it. Clipping the cap and giving it a pre light draw showed flavors of cocoa and hints of spice to it.
As many of you know I manage a B&M plus some other things and I'm always here for events. I took the 305 out to the deck after closing to unwind and was thinking back to some of the events we have held.
I torched up the cigar and was greeted with a very nice spice mixed with a slight sweetness of dark chocolate. Moving into the first third the spice continued but a tad mellower with the slight sweetness of the dark chocolate beginning to blend with a little dark wood. At the last Tarazona event we had, Eddie came early to make sure everything was ready and he was his normal 70 miles an hour Eddie. Before the event got started I could not resist and took out a metal stool and told him that if he stood on it he could talk to customers eye to eye. He laughed and said “Shut up Gator” and the event was underway. Near the end of the first third I began to detect hints of soft cream.
Into the second third, the soft cream began to show slightly more as the dark chocolate morphed into a dark roast coffee been with hints of dried fruit ebbing in. the dark wood remained as did some spice, making for a slightly creamy finish with some spice at the retro hale. If you really want to get Eddie talking, mention football and his son Logan. He is one very proud dad, and should be, of his son.
Moving into the final third of the cigar I am greatly enjoying the flavor. Rich and smooth, each draw giving a bounty of smoke that bring euphoria to the palate and senses, both awakening them and soothing at the same instance. In this part of the cigar, the wood comes through more boldly as the spice picks up. The coffee becomes slightly darker with the dried fruit continuing to add a mild sweetness. At the close of the cigar and the final draw, a nice deep earthiness came through making it rather succulent.
The Tarazona Revolution 305 is an outstanding addition to Tarazona cigars and fans of the 305 will readily go for it but any smoker would enjoy this hearty smoke. Look for these at you local B&M and if Eddie happens to be there, bring a stool with you and tell him its from Gator.
