Spring is in full swing in CO so to the extent any of you thought you were going to get reviews done in circumstances other than the golf course, you're sadly mistaken. My RyJ Churchill rode along with me yesterday as I continued my quest to reduce the ol' handicap. This one is from a Clearance sale from 24:24. The price was too good to pass up, and at something close to 10 bucks a stick it has serve me well as a box of golf cigars. Let's see how it stands up, shall we? Cold draw is straw with a hint of cherries, and initial third starts off very mild, creamy, with stone fruit as the predominant flavor. The construction is solid as well, and the burn quickly evens out though the initial burn was off due to lighting this thing in a moving golf cart. Squeezing this stick makes me fear it is a tad under filled, but nothing to worry too much about. It's a beautiful day and surprisingly there is no one on the course. Let's see how many holes this puppy can get through with us. The first third continues to build up in strength and body, though the flavors have not changed much. I'm still getting cherry/stone fruit as teh predominant secondary flavor to toasted tobacco. The second third picks up strength in body, and some earth tones move into the foreground of the flavor department. Still mild to mild/medium and very pleasant. Stuck on the 7th tee waiting for the grounds keepers to clear off the green (it's aeration season), the wind picks up slightly and this does begin to effect the burn line. Up to this point, the burn has not needed correction and I have not had to re-light the cigar. Not bad for an hour's time of putting it down, picking it up, driving around, and swearing at my idiot buddies. My favorite part of this cigar has always been the middle part of the second third through the middle part of the third. That's when the flavors come together beautifully and marry with a medium bodied smoke. I've never felt that the nicotine levels got too overpowering with this cigar toward the end either, which allows one to appreciate the flavors toward the nub without getting a headache or a numb upper lip. We've made it to the 11th green by the time this last picture was taken. This was the first time I needed to correct the burn with my torch the entire time. The wind had picked up, but I wasn't about to complain as I rode a 3 wood nicely left to right to set up an eagle chance on a difficult to reach par 5. I left the cigar go out on the 13th tee, as it was getting harsh and was beginning to get mono dimensional in the flavor department. All in all a great stick, one I have always enjoyed on the golf course and yesterday was no exception. Hope everyone is having a relaxing holiday weekend. 9 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
