Wrapper: African Cameroon
Bongani is the first African Cigar brand. Their cigars are made in Mozambique and are gradually growing their presence across Africa, the US and Europe.
Africa is very well positioned to produce excellent cigars as there is rich soils, lots of water, sun, and a long history growing tobacco.
Bongani means “Be Grateful”. Be grateful for life, family and friends.
First light reveals a perfect draw with mild-medium bodied flavors of a creamy texture with a sweet cream flavor followed by a hint of Cedar, with Coffee and Cocoa through the finish. The first third comes up to a medium body with the Cream dialed down, the body flavors going to a smooth Milk Chocolate and the Pepper coming up to match on the long finish. Burn is slow and the line nearly perfect. The ½ way point comes at just over 30 minutes shifting to a deep Coffee dominating both the draw and finish carrying the rest of the flavors on the background with perfect construction.
