  2. Blind #2 was a tough one for me. It was very sharp and tannic right off the bat with a very dry, bitter almond note throughout. It only occasional gave me flavors of sweet spice, cream, or chocolate, but they were few and far between. That said, I believe I’ve had this cigar before as I’ve gotten this same profile from several I’ve smoked recently. Others from the same box have been better. My notes: 1/3 med Bitter nuts Tannic Woody Touch of Cream Floral Little spice 2/3 med+ Milk Chocolate Bitter almond 3/3 - med+

  8. Eric from Utah, United States. Been lurking and learning here for a month or so, so I figured it was time to say hello. I was really into Cigars in the late 90’s/early aughts, but after starting a family, I slowed way down for awhile. I’ve rediscovered my love of the leaf over the last couple of years and just recently found this forum. I look forward to jumping in.
  9. I’ll plan on 20 min then ? Thanks for the reply. I signed up an will hopefully give it a go.
