RG PC Dry Review
Gorgeous Colorado wrapper, firm but okay draw. Earthy tobacco on cold draw. Seltzer water to drink with it. Started out with an earthy tobacco taste with some sweet spiciness and floral notes. It quickly transitioned to the floral notes and spiciness taking control. The burn was okay but a little wonky, needing a few touch ups and one relight. The rest of the smoke was dominated by the floral notes and spiciness ( maybe nutmeg or cinnamon) with some brief appearances of cocoa and leather. Just under medium body...perfect representation of an RG PC. 75 min. smoke time. 90-91
RG PC Wet Review
Ran this one under the tap for about 4-5 seconds and let the wrapper absorb and dry off on its own. Same gorgeous Colorado wrapper with a perfect draw this time. Same earthiness with a little leather on cold draw. Still seltzer water. Started out very similar to the dry one with an earthy tobacco taste but with a much more muted spiciness and floral notes. Frankly, I didn't notice much difference in the array of flavors I experienced during this smoke with the one exception being that the floral notes and sweet spiciness were way more subtle allowing me to pick up on the other flavors more easily and more often. The other difference (albeit minor) was the burn. The burn was still a little wonky but only required one touch up and no relights. I enjoyed both of these cigars a lot, but I guess I enjoyed the sharpness of the floral and spice notes in the dry version a little more even though it was to the detriment of the other flavors. Again just under medium body. I would be happy smoking either of these versions any time. 69 min. smoke time. 89 pts for this one.
