Cigar Review: Rojas Street Tacos Barbacoa

Initial Thoughts:

The first time I smoke the Rojas Street Tacos Barbacoa, things didn't go well. Not because of the cigar, its flavors, or how it was rolled, but because of technical issues and weather. So, today, we're back for Round 2 with the Rojas Street Tacos “Barbacoa” Short Corona.

The first thing I noticed about the Rojas Street Tacos Barbacoa was the closed foot. Immediately I became excited about the blast of wrapper flavor that was soon to come.

With a quick snip with my guillotine cutter, the draw was just about perfect. On the cold draw, I tasted lots of wood. The first few puffs offered lots of smoke to fully taste the Rojas Street Tacos Barbacoa, and while no single flavor really stood out, things were off to a good start.
