This cigar has a dark brown slightly veiny wrapper. Firm solid pack. Sweet tobacco and barnyard aromas come off the foot. Mild tobacco and hay flavors come on the pre-light draw.
The draw is perfect, producing tons of thick white smoke. Hints of coffee, toasted bread and a subtle sweetness come on the draw. The oily finish has slight notes with a peppery earth landing at the back of my throat. About two inches down, the bread is replaced by a strong cedar note. The pepper faded on the finish and the cedar lingers on the palate. The ash is holding for a little over an inch at a time. The cigar remains the same to the end.
The Cigar Factory New Orleans Café is a good cigar. Excellent construction and performance. Perfect draw and burn down to the nub. This cigar lacked a little in the flavor department. While still a good smoke, it good have used a little more zing or that extra something more that would have held my interest. I did like the Corona better.
