First things first, the cigar comes inside a cool-looking tube and in the middle of the tube, you’ll find the words “DARK KNIGHT” in big font. For a huge Batman geek like myself, that’s a great thing. And I hate to say it, but that alone would get me to buy this cigar. I know, I know. I’m the first one to preach about not getting sucked into marketing schemes, but I guess we’ll always be victims once in a while.
On the sniffles, the very dark and oily wrapper gave off a caramel chocolate and cedar smell. (It does come wrapped in a sheet of cedar) The foot smells very woody and on the pre-draw I picked up some more chocolate, but with a tea bag aftertaste behind it. Finding flavors and scents before the smoke is always a good thing. Perhaps I'm in for a good cigar?
