The cap is a nice combination of layers, and is nicely rounded for easy enjoyment of the Esteban Carreras 1961. The shade of brown is nicely centered between dark and light. The nice oily sheen provides a wonderful texture adding to the whole experience.

There have been observances that the pre-light puff is a little bit generic. However, once lit, the nice earthy aroma combines with hints of fruit for a nice medium-bodied experience. Initially, the sharpness of the flavors were said to sometimes resemble coffee, vanilla, and cinnamon. It takes about an inch before the spiciness starts kicking in, making the Esteban Carreras 1961 a well-rounded cigar for any level of smoker.

This is quite appealing to many aficionados as they tend to enjoy the consistency of a quality smoke. It has been noted that the spiciness will sometimes be accompanied by a slight bitter flavor, but it has been said to be very light and in no way overwhelming to the senses.

In the final third is where the smoker will begin experiencing the real pleasure in the Esteban Carreras 1961 as it proudly introduces a sweet, nutty flavor that is absolutely delightful. Especially when combined with the spiciness that still lingers in the background.
