Gio Series I measure 5” X 54 ring gauge. Presented in a beautiful Connecticut wrapper that is velvety in texture, the construction is impeccable and noticeable upon first light; the drawing is razor sharp and fills the mouth with creamy smoke. There is a light sweetness in the flavors of coffee beans and light spices; we also noted some almond nuttiness. The body hovered around medium, increasing slightly towards the finish. At the same time, the flavor intensity went from medium to full of sweet floral notes and rich cedar coming in to build out the bouquet.
