Manuel Quesada Q D’etat Howitzer 6X60
Country of Origin: Dominican Republic
What a huge cigar that delivers a quality smoking experience! I’m usually a fan of large cigars by nature, the more downtime I have, the more I can focus when it’s time to get to work. This cigar starts off with an easy, soft draw that remains consistent throughout the smoking time. Light notes of coffee whisper across the palate and turn into an interesting sweetness at the foot as the cigar develops. Plenty of white smoke billows from the initial light
To my disappointment, the second third of this cigar didn’t really change, but the burn and draw remained consistent for me. The last third saw added notes of pepper and earth along with the coffee flavors that had returned, only muted.
