Today had some nice warm weather with a slight breeze. Probably one of the last summer days where a DC seems just fit especially after work. I pulled out a stick that had been sitting in my herfador over night; one i meant to smoke yesterday but didnt because there wasn't ample time. The wrapper on the cigar looked on colorado claro side, silky smooth, with one slightly visible vein. The construction was perfect IMO. I used a Punch and it revealed a good draw, suprisingly open for a small cut which i prefer as usually I find with tight rolled cigars a punch is too resistant. Smell on the wrapper - light sweet tobacco Cold draw - dusty old cedar, with a faint hint of sweetness Upon lighting - a non agressive wood burn aroma that is soft on the nasal inhale First lighting notes gave way to flavours similar to the cold draw, woody, smoke is creamy, with a mild med body and light on the palate. About an inch in - Startin to get some tangy light citrus notes and nice sweet bready notes on the finish End of first third - Body is starting to build and the sweetness starts to get a bit darker with grassiness on the finish. 2nd third had to re light; i'm really getting a strong nuttieness, not unlike a fresh cracked walnut Its starts to settleinto a nice sweet faint caramel nuttiness with grassy notes again on the finish The last third, the nuttiness gets toasty with the sweet notes becoming a bit more prominent and darker. In the final parts of the burn i got a bit of that youthful bitter tannin that a good purge fixed. As i nubbed it, i got mainly sweet bitter nuttiness that was enjoyable to the last puff. Smoking time was 2hrs and 20mins. Thanks for taking the time to read. its my second review and i hope my review resonates with what others have experienced.
