Smoked mine a while back. From memory it was all over the place, tasted different on nearly every draw and I could barely work out any flavours beyond some coffee and maybe some cocoa. I'm clueless.

I'm 0 from 4 so lets see if can get the full Duck.

By far and away the best cigar of the 5. Pearler. Cracker. Beaut. My note said:

Sweet milky coffee. Baking spice. Lemon meringue? Gains leather and spice. Stunner. 95/100

I actually don't give a monkeys if I'm wrong on this one, there's no way I'm winning. I would like to have more though. Lovely cigar.

Cigar #5 for me also had a blotchy wrapper. Construction looked good and over all the flavors were fairly middle of the road, leather with suggestions of milk and cinnamon. Not much change until the last third which became noticeably stronger. I'd give it an 89.

Thanks to the Czar crew for putting on another fun Blind Cigar Challenge!

Smoked this one today...VERY NICE! By far, best of the five cigars in the tasting. I'll post more later...

Now that the cigar has been revealed, here are my tasting notes...

First 1/3: First couple of puffs...PARTAGAS!!! Wow, what's that? Creamy coffee, then COCOA!!! LOTS of cocoa!!! Never had this in a Partagas before...VR or Monte???

Second 1/3: One word...COCOA!!! Definitely VR...

Final 1/3: Cocoa fades to black coffee. Yep, VR.

Guess I was wrong!

This is pretty similar to what I thought. Pure chocolate/cocoa for the 1st third, was thinking Monte or VR, had a few puffs that i thought could be Partagas towards the back end of the 2nd third then the last third was just a bit hot and dirty.
