Popular Post BoliDan Posted May 18, 2019 Popular Post Share Posted May 18, 2019 Late morning, kid woke me up at 5am. Already had too much coffee so I'm pairing with the next best thing, A&W Cream Soda. Kept at 60%rh 70F. This had 4 months humidor time in my humi. This bolivar looks good, light wrapper shade and not very briny. Very hard to the touch, like a brick. During the cold draw I can tell this will give me some trouble, so I preemptively give it a perfect draw poke up to the band. Try cold draw again, much better. Flavor is light cocoa and leather. 1st third: brilliant start. The aroma of antique books come to mind. Leather screams through the retrohale. Top soil when it is wet and earth worm come out to play. A little white pepper dances on my tounge. 2nd third. Wife keeps texting me about switching our son to whole milk. Trying to stay focused. Flavors starting to move around a bit, but remain similar in notes. I cant taste the cocoa trying to say hello, but earth and leather keep screaming over it. Final third: flavors really balanced out now. Rich and refined, staying at medium-full. Top soil gone, but there is still an earthiness lurking. Cocoa was obviously just stopping by because he left completely. But what's this? A hint of peanuts and citrus. Hell yeah, I'll take it! 88/100 Great little smoke. Will probably be 90 with another year on it, and leather top soil calms a bit to let creamy cocoa say hello. Smoke time: 49 minutes. 5 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
