King Edwards Cigar Flavor Profiles
King Edwards cigars come in three flavors; natural, cherry and menthol
The King Edwards natural flavor captures all that we love about cigars. You get to enjoy the natural taste and aroma of tobacco and a natural wrapper. From the onset, you can smell the dry barnyard or hay aroma on the wrapper. The first draw and consequent draws deliver authentic cigar flavor of dry tobacco, slightly sweet tones from the natural wrapper and the mild strength that is synonymous with King Edwards cigars.
The Cherry flavored King Edward cigars are an absolute delight. The aroma of sweet fruity cherry is evident from the wrapper. Even though you will not taste much from the cold draw, the flavor will be dominant from the first draw once you light your cigar. From my experience, this cherry flavored cigar is more of a sweet snack than it is a cigar. The cherry zest is so dominant that you may forget that you are actually smoking a cigar. There are tobacco notes in the background and a slight cocoa notes in the retrohale. There is no harshness or bitterness, and the strength is mild. This is basically a delicious cigar in a little fun-size.
The wrapper gives off a soft menthol aroma. King Edward cigars are mild in strength. The menthol presence in the flavor is pretty robust from the first draw. There is a basic cigar taste in the background with subtle cocoa notes. The strength stays mild in the cigar-scale but a bit stronger than a cigarette. Even though I am not a big menthol fan, I liked that the retrohale is not at all harsh on the palate. The smoke is smooth with all the qualities of a full-size cigar. The draw is excellent, the burn is relatively slow, and the smoke output is excellent.
