Emilio La Musa Melete
The La Musa Melete is the second offering in Emilio’s Muse line. Comprised of Nicaraguan tobaccos, the Melete sports a striking white band with purple Greek writing. The cigar is chocolaty brown in color with some small veins visible. The cigar has a nice cedar aroma, that stays with it through the pre-light draw and initial lighting.
The cigars are very well constructed and carry a balanced coffee and cedar note throughout the smoke. The cigar falls in the medium bodied range with medium nicotine strength as well. Despite being a Nicaraguan Puro, the cigars do not have the strong pepper that one might expect. The pepper is there in the background but balances well with the sweetness. This cigar pairs well with a rich, strong red wine.
