Review by Shawn from Nice Tight Ash – Martinez Flatiron #6 NYC Cigar

Nice Tight AshShawn reviews the NYC cigar made by Martinez – Flatiron #6.

“The wrapper has a few veins, a nice triple cap all around a slightly box pressed shape. The foot has strong notes of nutmeg, slight spice and dark wood. Likenesses of a lighter nutmeg and wood aromas come from the wrapper. The cigar has a nice firm feel to it, no soft or hard spots to worry with. The draw was dead on where I like a draw to be at.

The middle portion of the cigar is where it shined for me. I really liked the opposing bitter sweet and salty sweetness in the smoke. The spice was there, but not as much as I thought it would have with a lot of Nicaraguan tobacco in it. I find the body of this cigar to be a solid medium (maybe a bit more) and the flavor strength a medium to full range. Overall a well-constructed cigar that had nice coffee, salted caramel, spice and creamy notes.”
