A very classy Churchill that privileges smoothness and creaminess, whilst maintaining the fine equilibrium between strength and rich aroma. Heavy, spicy, almost meaty tones make this the ideal after dinner digestive cigar. Red meat and red wine, cream and herbs, all of these flavors stoke the fires of the Esplendidos making that digestive smoke a moment to relish. Definately not a beginners cigar.
