HumidorJuan Posted April 30, 2019 Share Posted April 30, 2019 RnJ Short Churchill: BOP AGO 18 time in humidor: 7 days I'm breaking my rule of holding them in the humi for 30 days before a new one is tested out, but we JUST scored a bonkers deal on another box of these from your friendly neighbourhood 24:24, and I've never had one (five left from this batch now) so out to the barn I went. I chose the veiniest, most average one of my 6. Part 1: Wow, cherry bomb all the way. the second hand smoke had a tart cherry jam to it, and Immediately I wanted a nice refreshing moscow mule to go along with it. I love finding a vitola that pairs well with iced, carbonated, citrusy, boozy drinks. I may have tasted apple skin and burnt sugar in the background and by the end of the first third, the cherry diminished and a cereal grain rose up. Part 2: I had a very bad canoe happen (the pic happened when i thought it was going to correct itself but...) The stick stayed the same flavour intensity and part 2 consisted of Amaretto, cinnamon, burnt sugar (tasted just like those cinnamon hearts candies that are around on valentines day) and like how the cereal grain crept in at the end of part 1, part 2 finished with the intro of porridge and rose. Part 3: By this point, under that big ash that stayed firmly in place, i lost fire and had to knock that gorgeous ash off to relight. It never really evened itself out and when i had to move the bands, the bands took the wrapper off with it, but being wrapperless, it still stayed put together. flavour wise, it didnt get acrid and sooty like a re lit stick can get but i was a bit preoccupied with the construction issues to recall properly. Overall: Really impressed with how flavourfull a young stick like this was. I think i'll be keeping some of these stocked for years to come, and cant wait for some age on these. Just delicious. Hopefully the others burn more evenly! 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
