On the aroma, I picked up sweet baking spice notes while the foot has a bit of a fire and smokey barnyard notes and a touch of earthiness. I must say the smokeynotes are strong. But nothing wrong with some smokey barnyard aromas that blend into an aged tobacco scent.

Using a V cutter, I opened the cap perfectly and gave the Cuchillo Parado some cold draw puffs. The draw is easy and airy.

The draw offered notes of pepper, cream, and a bit of dry hay.

Let's light. Warm the foot to an even orange glow and draw in the first puffs of pepper and woody notes. The burn is even producing a light ash.

The Casa 1910 Cigars Cuchillo Parado is a nice-looking dark tan and smooth cigar. It does have a few veins running along the barrel, but nothing rugged. It is a well-packed cigar and the roll has tight seams with a firm feel.

Dry and musty.

The cigar has two bands.

The primary band uses a bright gold and white motif that displays the company’s logo in the centre. The rattlesnake wrapped around the band looks like a tree trunk.

Across the top is the phrase “MIL NOVECIENTES DIEZ” which translates into 1910. The bottom states “Origen Veracruz Mexico” which identifies the location where the cigar originates from. The left and right side displays the colours of the Mexican flag (green, white, orange).

There is a circle on the left with the number 19 and “Orgullo Nacional” (National Pride) along with a circle on the left with the number 10 and “Elaborado por Artesanos” (Made by Artisans).

A secondary orange band sits below the primary band and states the name of the cigar Cuchillo Parado in gold.

Initial light offers a mix of pepperand woodnotes.

Medium grey ash develops on top of a medium thick and slightly wavy burn line. Each puff delivers a full volume of thick and chewy smoke.

A growinglight sweetcitrus taste starts while the overall note is caramel and creamy biscuits. The smoke is smooth and creamy with cocoanuances and light cedar notes. There are hints of floral notes.

Medium in Strength

Total Smoking Time was 1 hour and 30 minutes. A nice slow smoke, but very enjoyable and easy.

Effortless draw with a hefty smoke output. The cigar has strong hot fudge notes with caramel and malva pudding flavours.

Wood, earth, and vanilla float in the air.

What was a general sweetness on the pulls slowly becomes smooth vanilla. Spice decreases all around.

This cigar's consistency is admirable with a subtle complexity.

Montpellier Pinot Noir Bubbly

Montpellier Pinot Noir Bubbly

Colour pick-up from the red grape, Pinot Noir, minimised by maturing control at harvest and minimum skin contact during processing before the bottling to undergo second fermentation.

This bright, fresh, and intense Brut Pinot Noir tickles the nose with aromas of fresh berries, black cherries, and a hint of mushroom with a fine bead.

It is a full-flavoured sparkling wine. The bubbly delivers arousing aromas of lightly toasted flavours, surrounding a core of crushed strawberry and forest fruits.

Delicious with rich creamy dishes that have a ‘toasty’ character. The wine is perfect for puff-pastry dishes and a cigar. It is also associated with luxury foods such as Foie Gras, caviar, black & white truffles, oysters, and the finest smoked salmon.

The Pinot Noir Bubbly enhances the hot fudge character of the cigar. There are tastes of fruity flavours and a macaroon sweetness.

The pairing lifts the pastry notes of the cigar with light strawberry aftertastes.

If you love bubbly, the wine is excellent with this creamy cigar. It is a lighter-style cigar easy with a morning coffee or a fresh spring evening.

The cigar smokes easy with caramel biscuit notes and tobacco sweetness.

It is a super smooth smoke, very enjoyable with the light fruity bubbly wine.
