Tampa Tobacco Company - Preferado

Strength:  Medium 
Wrapper:  Habano
Origins:  Ybor City, FL, USA
Shape:  figurado
Length:  6.5"
Ring size:  60
Approx cost:  $7
Bdawg says:  A reddish brown, slightly veiny oily wrapper.  The draw was just a little moist.  The ash was long, white, and tight (twss).  The flavor was caramel, adn cedary, with a tangy finish.  The first one smoked terribly uneven.  so I took it back and they happily replaced it.  That one smoked slow and even.

Tampa Tobacco Company is no more than a large walk-in closet off of 7th ave. 
There were a couple chairs outside to sit on, but most of the time they were
occupied by their regulars.  (Who were quite the cast of characters).
