Total Flame Premium

Total Flame Premium
The Total Flame Premium is made at La Aurora’s E. León Jimenes Tabacalera factory under license. The cigars are presented and sold in tubos that look quite similar to the Dominican company’s flagship line. The size is 5 x 54 with an Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper, Dominican binder and fillers from the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua.
The company founder’s dream has come true. One day, Maxim Privezentsev, the future founder and owner of Total Flame Cigars, discovered that he wanted to combine two passions: cigars and motorcycles. Then, he decided to create premium cigars, which would be rolled of the best tobaccos in the world, so, he went around all the five continents on his motorcycle.
One of the goals was reached in 2010. The first blends and cigars were born – Maxim went to the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua in order to find the ideal combination of tobaccos for his cigars. Tasting the best cigar tobaccos for several months, he finally got satisfied and convinced that then created cigars were the best ones. Total Flame has named different models of cigars after well-known engine parts.
The wrapper and foot give a fresh tobacco -and chocolate aroma. The cold draw is pretty sweet and tempting.
Immediate initial spicy flavor with later on some nice toasted nutty flavors. The first third finishes with some sweetness but also typical coffee and cocoa with the nuttiness moving towards leather.
The draw is ideal. Continuing into the second third, cedar becomes prominent. The pepper is still there but not sharp and slowly fading away. It starts out with a more rich profile, with the previous cocoa and coffee fading to be replaced with roasted peppers and wood notes. The Total Flame Premium is medium body and medium strong with a very even burn.
The final third continues with rich wood and mild pepper notes. The smoke production has increased to a pleasing level now and rich smoke filling the air.
The cigar finishes nicely without getting harsh.
The Total Flame Premium is very enjoyable and has a retro look that catches the eye on the shelf of a humidor. The cigar profile has a great mixture of flavors that blend well. The beginning profile is completely different from the ending one. This is the evolution to expect in a premium cigar blended and invented by a professional but most of all passionate cigar connoisseur as Maxim.
