An Intriguing and very pleasant "waste" of a cigar.
Stream of consciousness:
They don't get any more ROTT than this. Within 15 minutes of the mail arriving today, I had the box open. Five minutes after that, I had my lighter out.
I told myself that it was because one of the cigars had a little wrapper damage, but really, it's just because I'm easy.
The burn was ever so slightly wonky, because...duh...the cigar is three minutes old.
But that didn't stop me.
This is a very good cigar. I strongly suspect that it will become great. Despite the price, I'll be buying a few more boxes. And I'll be hiding them deep in my stash, and trying to forget about them until 2024 and beyond.
They're absolutely Punch cigars. I was taken back to both the RS11 and Ninfas while I smoked it.
Creamy roasted nut butter, and peat, and herbal notes wove in and out.
This is a substantial cigar, and it got quite strong in the last third. Body fluctuated between medium and full a couple of times.
It would be great in the evening after a big meal.
Dalias are perfect sized cigars to me. The ring size and the length are just right.
It's clearly a young cigar. And very tannic, but in a surprisingly smooth way. It's because of that that I want to bury and forget them for a while. They're very enjoyable now, but may be classics down the road.
Well done, PCC. Well done.
