Man O' War Side Project Skull Crusher by A.J. Fernandez: Quick Review

Man O' War Side Project Skull Crusher
I like Man O' War's a lot and this Skull Crusher is the first Side Project I've had the chance to smoke. This one came in a sampler, but you can pick up a single from Cigar.com for $9.00. Well lets give this a spin and see if it really crushes my skull.

Even with my glasses on it was tough to spot the seams in the oily wrapper and there are only very fine veins. One thing that did surprise me is the cap over the foot. Cold, the draw is free with a nice spicy mix of fermented tobacco and cocoa.

Once burning, I pick up flavors from the Skull Crusher of black pepper, oak and cocoa that rapidly change into bold, full bodied chocolate. After the first inch there I find some earth, brown sugar, coffee, toast and roasted nuts.

A.J Fernandez did it again, this Skull Crusher was a great stick. It had great flavors, super construction and a long 90 minute burn time.

Oh, by the way, my skull remains intact!
