When I read here that Litto was going to be releasing another LG Small Batch, and an oscuro at that, it was exciting new to me as I've loved the previous releases. I've let the SB IV Oscuro rest along side the previous SB IV rest in my humidor for a couple of weeks to be ready for review. Hope the comparison is worthwhile, thanks for reading.
LG Small Batch 4
Construction-Great deep colorado brown color and firm throughout with a nice cap
Burn/Draw-Even burn with a great draw
Flavor/Aroma-great complexity and finish;Full bodied and full flavor
1/3-cedar,chocolate, spice, pepper, sweetness, leather
3/3-same,intensity continues to build but remains balanced
Overall 9.3/10- A great cigar; complex, great aroma, finish and balanced.
LG Small Batch 4 Oscuro
Construction-Great rich oscuro color and firm throughout with a nice cap, no issues here.
Burn/Draw-Even burn with a great draw, again no issues here.
Flavor/Aroma-starts out Med-Full ends up Full strength, medium flavor throughout
1/3-wood,cocao, bitter chocolate,sweet cream,trace nuttiness
2/3-same, a little harshness developing
3/3-a slight mint emerges and pepper,more harshness
Overall-8.4/10- A real disappointment to me, was surprised how muted the flavors were in comparison. Hopefully time will bring out its potential goodness, it has for the 1-3 and I expect the 4. But it has a long way to go as the previous started out as such good cigars.
