Cigar Review: Kafie 1901 San Andres Five Forty Six
The first thing I noticed about the Kafie 1901 San Andres Five Forty-Six was the super-sweet, super-creamy flavors I tasted just after lighting the cigar. Talk about a great first impression!
This cigar is my first ever Kafie cigar. It's a small, narrow robusto that's been box-pressed. The Mexican San Andres wrapper is shiny, but not oily. After punching the end, the draw is a little tight, but manageable.

About halfway through the cigar, things began to get interesting. While the draw remained fairly tight, which is odd for a box-pressed cigar, the flavors took a spicey turn.
The spiciness that showed up midway through the cigar persisted through until the end. The cigar had a perfect burn, but the draw never seemed to loosen up. Overall, the construction of the cigar was pretty good. There were no soft spots or anything that caused an uneven burn. The flavors were spicy and full.
Overall, the Kafie 1901 San Andres Five Forty-Six is a decent cigar that packs a flavor punch. Despite the Dominican and Honduran tobacco, the flavors are pretty full. The Kafie 1901 San Andres earns a CigarScore 4 and should provide just over an hour's worth of enjoyment.
