Length: 6.5"
Ring size: 52

Cigar Aficionado Rating:  89
Bdawg says: Erik Nording has been one of the world’s premiere pipe craftsman for the past 50 years. Wanting to create his own exclusive cigar, it’s no surprise that he turned to Rocky Patel.
This cigar sports an oily, well constructed, dark reddish brown wrapper. The draw is perfect producing a good amount of smoke and a salt and pepper colored ash. Although the ash split early (see picture below). What causes this? It didn't seem to affect the cigar though. After I shed it the first time, it was fine. The flavor was toasty, espresso, with a slightly acidic finish. The burn was slow and even. 
What causes this?
