Viva Republica Propaganda

Viva Republica Propaganda
This Viva Republica Propaganda is another cigar from Little Smoke 2014, put on by Legends of Fire at Northern Quest Casino. No need to worry, I only have about twenty more sticks from this event left to review.

I'm not really sure if this is a pre-release or not, I couldn't find it for sale on-line so perhaps it is.

It's a nice stout little cigar measuring 4 x 54. Covered by a hearty dark maduro colored wrapper. The seamless wrapper itself is oily, it has a few smaller veins and a bit of tooth. From the foot there is a faint aroma of toast. While the draw is a bit tight, but still acceptable, it has flavors of spicy fruit.

After the foot was toasted and burning the first medium/full bodied flavors were a mix of cocoa and white pepper. The burning cigar also produced a large volume of smoke. As the burn progressed there were other flavor notes of raw sugar, a hint of anise, brown sugar, leather, barnyard and coca. The sixty minute burn finished with a full bodied mix of caramel and leather.

Overall, this was a nice cigar. The burn took off a bit in the first third, but self corrected by the mid point. I feel Viva Republica has another winner in their already great cigar line.
