Popular Post Islandboy Posted May 4, 2019 Popular Post Share Posted May 4, 2019 I’ve only managed to secure 3 singles of these thus far, this being the second I’ve taken fire to. Scoring a box or 5 remains elusive but is a major short-term goal in life. Everything about this cigar appeals to me: I love the size and the smoking time that comes with it, the cold aroma is difficult to properly describe but is entirely intoxicating (some sort of fine leather), construction is impeccable, taste is incredibly balanced and smooth for such a young stick, and the labels come off with the ease of silk panties...a fine experience that screams elegance and desire. Once burning, taste and aroma are uniquely pleasing. I’ve got hay, cocoa, coffee, almond nuttiness, a bit of wood, some fine leather, and a nice peppery bite to the retro hale in the first third. The balance of these flavors is pure perfection. There’s something familiar about the overall flavor that I struggle to define. Then it hits me...the aroma of fresh hot-buttered popcorn. It’s in there, I swear. The second third sees the same wonderful balance of flavors, but a marked smoothness develops. The peppery retro hale completely disappears. This continues through the final third, with an introduction of mint as I near the end...a sign of youth, but not unpleasant. This is a damn fine cigar, one of the finest this humble soul has experienced. I give it a 96, and it’s not even a year old. Cheers! 23 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
