Hi all this is my first review on here so here goes ! now first off .. i am not big on flavours..i usually can not drag out multiple flavours in a cigar..either my tastebuds are knackered from drinking to much meths as a kid ..or my brain just isnt good enough...but all i know is i either like the cigar..or i don't ! so anyhow here we have a classic aged punch i have had sitting around for many years..which i love dearly....so lets see how it is today! COLD DRAW - it tastes like the smell of the cigars in the box..a wonderful woodsy / fungal mushroom flavour......wonderful perfect draw..great start. CONSTRUCTION - not a great wrapper..very lumpy...but no soft spots...very firm...i store them at 65% FIRST THIRD - well to start this a very light cigar so far,...a light hint of caramel....a touch of white pepper through the nose...and a very light oatmeal/ biscuit in the background. as i approach the 2nd third the white pepper has ramped up a touch mainly through the nose...hardly any sweet notes to talk of..the burn line has been great i must add. 2ND THIRD - aaahh ...the honey is back..the white pepper is still here ...this is a medium bodied cigar at best so far...the oatmeal flavour is still here ...the honey/caramel flavour is coming from the wrapper..its coating my lips with now a little salt....now becoming very leather/woodsy as i approach the final third. FINAL THIRD - the caramel/honey is still here but on the wrapper, i am disappointed not to have tasted more biscuit/shortcake/oatmeal which seems to of disappeared sadly for me. it is still very woody with white pepper across my tongue,... it is getting stronger now ..there is a strong dark espresso coming through...oh hang on!...the caramel is now here and coating my mouth..wonderful !! this is unexpected which is working very well with the bitter espresso element in the cigar. ...its now full bodied and coming to its end. conclusion- i enjoyed the smoke although it wasnt the best example from the box i have had.. a nice journey though on a sunday morning...and still plenty of life in the cigars yet. 93 points.
