It is the Macanudo Vintage Maduro 1997 Perfecto. For such a dark maduro wrapper, it had a very light, unusual aroma.... redolent of wet labrador....

The other is the Liga Privada T52. In comparison, this had hardly any aroma to speak of.

Redolent of a dry Labrador, perhaps? :D

He likes them wet

:rotfl:

Yeah, no dramas at all... though was pretty ordinary for most the next day. Had, I think, 5 or 6 coffees- the worst moment was trying to keep awake watching Avengers. Dark theatre + 4ish hours sleep = struggle.

Bloody loved the night though, so it was well worth it. Keen as a bean for May... you guys stick around much after I left? I thought a random guy skateboarding down an alley on his belly while tripping on acid was as good a time as any to leave :)

Nah, Hunter smells like vanilla now that he's had his bath!

The Liga Privada had a very light minty hay aroma, even though the wrapper is meant to be a maduro. Strange.

Then again, I've got no clue when it comes to NCs. Haven't smoked one in probably 4 years.

Good to hear you made it back in kinda one piece! :2thumbs:

We didn't hand around much longer after you left. Elie went to check in on the gimp, to chain him up for the night, but that's about all.

Fuzz...the wrapper on the Liga Privada T52 is actually a stalk cut oscuro wrapper, while it looks maduro, it's not. Instead of harvesting the leaves, they actually cut the whole stalk of tobacco and hang that upside down in the curing barns.

Ah, thank you for the correction. Was told on the night that it was a maduro.
