ALO Mar 17
Rested in humidor only 11 days
Dry boxed for 20 hours @ 55% rh
Smoking conditions: 62F at 82% rh
Straight cut with a nice divot
Started with toasted tobacco, bit of leather
Lots of smoke
Muted flavors but I can tell there is more in there
Slightly uneven burn but I would not call it wonky
Just the slightest hint of salty sweetness on the finish
More powerful flavors develop
Still a lot of smoke with a similar burn.
The ash has held and no touch ups required. Draw is still perfect.
Salty sweet really coming through now
Ash fell off at end of 2nd third
Had to puff a little harder to get it back to full smoke after the ash fell off but did not relight.
Walnut toasted tobacco dominated the flavors here. Very enjoyable.
The sweetness faded toward the end.
Hit of bitterness at the end
Burn was wonky at the end and required the 1st touch up.
Last flavors of just toasted tobacco but still LOTS of smoke output and never went out on me.
Finished decent with no bitterness and toasted tobacco dominant flavors with just the slightest sweetness.
45 minute smoke
Decent morning stick. Really wasn’t complimented by the coffee but wasn’t hindered by it either. Started out at an 87. Moved to a 90. Finished at an overall 89.
Reminded me of a not as sweet 17’ El Prinicipe but yet brought in the walnut that made it its own.
