I smoked a Natural Chisel tonight. I've had it for close to a year, intimidating me every time I looked at it. At first light I wondered what in the world I was getting into. Such a strong, concentrated tobacco flavor with some pepper and spice mixed in. Pure POW!
I forged on and boy am I glad I did. about 1/3 or 1/2 way through the stick really seemed to mellow out with strong espresso and earthy/leathery flavor. Still peppery and strong as I could still taste/sense/feel the Ligero, but the flavor was really quite enjoyable. A staple in my humi? I don't think so. But if I'm looking for a little more kick, I would reach for one again.
The Diez on the other hand....holy mother! They are kick ass strong!
Loved the review...that and I am a total sucker for all things LFD...anyhow...I myself also prefer the Natural to the Maduro...and that goes for the entirety of that particular line...now if they would only make it in the Oscuro Natural line...hmmm
