Marevas (2/5)

  1. Puntilla - really enjoying it Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Tasted just like a RASS said no one ever...
  3. Cold draw - a nice clean sweetness Pre-light draw, a burst of super sweet - quickly disappeared and first few draws bring solid roasted tobacco - draw is great 1/3 - leather, roasted tobacco - some mild spices come into play, nothing over powering in flavor however right when I thought it is heading to solid medium it dropped into sweet and smooth creamy mildness - burn is flawless thus far 2/3 - Mellowed out very nicely - i really don't know the flavors (no expert) but man I'm really digging it - a smooth richness has begun and I don't want it to end! It might be peanuts, toasted tobacco, as I get close to the final third this flavor stays and strengthens - touch of spice is back, Y-U-M!! 3/3 - the spice takes a back seat again and the flavor is just spot on for me; i get touches of this from one of my favorite marcas but this delivering it in with each getting some wood and hay flavors...but comes right back to that flavor - roasted peanut maybe ?? slightly bitter at nub, put it down. The burn was flawless - 80% flavor just perfect for me; age would probably make this a great smoke for my profile
  4. 08 Punch #12 - perfect draw, burn and just fanfkntasty!

  6. My first over blind cigar review...or official review of any sort Lovely wrapper, incredibly smooth, construction is top notch, fill is great all around which is evident after cutting just the cap w/ my Cuban Crafters perfect cut (straight cut) cutter as the draw is just right, no resistance . Many times these belicosos give me fits on the draw and I have to cut deep due to the tight roll, not in this case one bit.. Cold draw -- light, mild, sweet Pre-light draw --- light pepper, wood, earthy 1/3 -- Draw is great, lots of smoke, early pepper on the retro almost to being harsh on the nose...but starts to smooth out as we get going...flip flop of wood to pepper ping pongs -- a slight tunnel is fixed with lighter but the smoke is medium; burn is perfect otherwise 2/3 - More of the same continues, woody, earthy, lots of smoke, some pepper keep popping up but then goes totally mellow, smooth, some cream, some cold draw sweetness returns and a lovely 'cuban twang' flavor that I know too well arrives, just love it....a bit later another slow smoker tunnel needs correcting 3/3 - not much changed in final 3rd, medium strength was still there in spades or maybe I had a couple two more drinks than I should have :-)?? more of that deep twang did come back - is that ligero? dunno, i'm still a rookie 4 years into this journey... Definitely some parts of the profile I really enjoyed... construction was spot on....i'd love to smoke another 2-3 to compare or in a small vitola.

  10. My first one — very creamy, nutty and smooth until the end. Will try another in 6 mo Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. It’s been hit and miss for me with the LGC Caribe...found several underfilled cigars out of a box I have...a year ago they seemed HTF now all over online sites. I will say the JL4 is all over too (8 yrs from release) but personally think it is smoking great right now. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Maybe I’m missing the traditional flavors experience with aged CC is still pretty minimal — mostly smoking regular production from last couple years. Is there a marca / year you’d say exemplifies it best? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. VR españa Cold draw peppery with honey sweetness in 1/3, smooth creamy smoke in 2/3, finished with more pepper and that delicious creamy twang.... burn line never wavered — medium full Only disappointment was draw was tight so I had to drill it a couple times — overall a great smoke!

  14. Yes can be a bit HTF. Snagged some BH last year — if you are interest my friend shoot me a message! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
