“Another day another exceptional sample. The aroma of this sample is more fruity, with orange peel. The aroma of tobacco, wood, herbs and various medicinal aromas prevails here. In my opinion La Lune had better aroma. The taste is much more sharper than in the case of La Luna. There is a hint of vanilla, but the dominant flavors are fruit, mint, tar and strong cigar smoke. The finish is relatively long, with tobacco, herbs and spices predominating. Another great sample that will please the more experienced person, but if I have to choose, I would choose La Lune.”
