Filler: Dominican, Nicaraguan & Paraguayan
Previously only available in Europe. A medium body cigar boasting tremendous complexity. Developed by Sébastien Decoppet, this cigar features a six variety blend with tobaccos from five countries. Flavor profile: Sweet and salty with mild spice. A symphony of underwood savour, with notes of humid earth, moss, mushrooms, and toasted aroma.
This was my first time trying out the Salomones. In fact, the only other white series I've had has been their lancero (which I thoroughly enjoy).
Before even lighting it - this is a beautiful cigar. Love the shape, and the wrapper is really nice. Feels smooth and makes you want to just stare at it and touch it (lol). This one started out with slight floral as well as cream and coffee notes. Kind of like those coffee drinks that taste more like creamer than coffee (not judging if you like that ;-)), and salty. Like other cavaliers I've tried, it also had a grassy note to it.
Reaching the largest part of the bulb, wood notes took over as the floral went away, but cream notes stuck around. Strength was light and inched up towards medium towards the halfway point through to the end. Perfect strength for me because I'm a lightweight. Body was light to medium. Fantastic draw. Burn was a bit wavy but usually corrected itself, only had to touch up a couple of times.
Overall: I enjoyed it - the flavor was good and the strength was perfect for me, but I was hoping to experience more flavor change in such a large format because it gets a bit boring after a while, and this is a fairly long smoke. I would personally pick the lancero over the salomones, and if you love that flavor, try the salomones.
