El Rey Del Mundo Choix Supreme 2018 (CDEFRW)
Cold aroma: subtle hay, sweet barnyard on wrapper and foot.
1/3: Another single out of store. Opens up with earthiness, nuts, and leather with a touch of pepper. Construction was tight so the PD tool saves the day. Draw is firm but completely smokable. Flaky grey ash with black streaks.
2/3: medium bodied and some more roasted tobacco notes come to play. Not much transition here at halftime but still enjoyable.
3/3: The pepper fades away. Mostly earth and roasted tobacco now as we go into the band.
This example didn’t have the tea tannins or honey / sugar sweetness I experienced in last example. So they have changed sitting in the humidor at 62%RH for several months. Burn was excellent and smoke volume quite adequate for a stick that needed some tooling applied. Interesting to note the last Choix I had was in high humidity drizzle and today we have good humidity here today at 66%. Overall a nice medium body at 89 puntas. Cheers
