ALL SAINTS ST. FRANCIS | CIGAR REVIEW
MARCH 10, 2022 - PHIL KURUT, COMEDY - CIGARS - MUSIC
ALL SAINTS ST. FRANCIS TORO (6 1/2 x 52)
WRAPPER: ECUADORIAN OSCURO
St. Francis begins with a flawless draw and an ample smoke output, presenting wood, milk chocolate, and a little bit of fruit, which is embedded deep and subtly within the milk chocolate.
Fruit and clean earth flow through the nose. That fruit both in the pull and retrohale begins to define itself as refined cherry. I like that.
Leather, fruit, and spice make for a nice team on the finish. The burn waves the slightest bit but asks for no help as of yet.
As I was about to type how strong the ash is, I take a pull of pure dark chocolate and cherry. Nice. By the way, solid ash. Might be using steroids. Also, by the way, the wood note becomes more defined as cedar.
Chocolate and wood take up some space in the room.
Cream begins to build itself within the cherry. I don’t want to jinx it, but this cigar seems to get a bit better every few puffs.
Joining an already well-balanced finish, dark chocolate now rests comfortably in the mix.
I find myself wanting to take more frequent draws from the St. Francis as dark chocolate, cherry, and cream remain consistent every single time. I suppose I'll slow down to prevent myself from burning it all to a crisp.
The ash legitimately might be on steroids, which no bodybuilders or professional athletes would ever use. Natty, bro.
Flowing through cleanly initially to leave cherry to finish out, the retrohale dances beautifully. That was stated a little more artsy than I like, but it’s still true. Spice tapers itself on the finish, allowing even more room for wood, cherry, leather, coffee, and dark chocolate.
A crack forms where the first band, which was applied a tad aggressively, used to rest. Prayer warriors unite.
Consistently moving along on all fronts as the St. Francis comes to a close, there’s really not much to complain about. As I’ve said before, consistency is fine by me. Shout out to the prayer warriors who were unaware I needed it while I was reviewing this cigar. Burned right through that crack. Onto world peace, I suppose.
So, yesterday, I asked a guy how he was doing, and he replied, “I can’t complain. Besides, nobody would listen if I did.” My response was, “You’re probably right.” He gave me an odd look, and I said, “Well, you wouldn’t want to listen to my complaints either.” He then said, “Actually, I would.” I feel like he was lying.
SMOKE TIME: 2 hrs. 15 mins.
RATING: 3.5 / 4 - Natty, bro.
