Popular Post duabley Posted May 19, 2019 Popular Post Share Posted May 19, 2019 Today I was surprised with some free time so to celebrate I figured it's a duel of my two favorite cigars: Petit Corona ETP ENE 16 Belicoso fine TEO JUN 17 My drink is Ron Zacapa 23 Faint leather and tobacco on both stick with the BF having a nutty note as well First puff: BF ....rich strong notes of smooth tobacco and leather the retro is filled with pepper and spice with a light herbal nut flavor that is just delicious and unexpected PC .... there is a sweeter note with either a sour or bitter texture that makes an overall better balance to the rich tobacco. Along with a more concentrated herbal/vegetal note. The PC is more complex while the BF is more savory. Both excellent with excellent draw and construction! 1st 3rd: BF ....the sour note like the PC starts to fill out the profile. This cigar is ultra smooth next to the PC as well. Coffee is showing up and the texture is becoming more thick and creamy. This cigar is a treat and pairs well with the rum. With toasty tobacco and leather flowed by a creamy sour flavor PC .... the sweet & sour flavor has grown into a malty flavor and the complexity is outshining the BF. The malty sweetness is impressive with tons of flavors in the retrohale (my palate isn't able to pick them out). The complexity is and balance is cigar smoking perfection. Both cigars are easily in the 90s here with the PC slightly edging the BF, what a treat!!! 2nd 3rd >Either my palate or the cigars are washing out alittle getting harder to distinguish < BF .... all big and rich savory flavor in a creamy package leather in the front with tobacco and creamed coffee in the back. The sweetness is all the way back and the smoke is on the dryer side (again rum is going well with this one) PC .... if not for this review I'd be sitting back with this cigar taking over my attention. There is a harshness developing if I dont smoke it cool and slow so. But on the right pull it's a masterful smoke that reminds me why I cant stop buying these Final 3rd: Ok so a might have a bit of a buzz ? BF .... while still delectable, the flavors are getting harder to distinguish a slightly sour tobacco and strong leather trying to offshoot the cigars youth. Still box worthy, and an easy smoker that can accompany good fellowship and drinks without taking over. Sour PC.... the complexity and evolution of this stick is lost on a double review (oops). I also lost it alittle as I wrote up the BF. After a minor heat up to get it going the malts are still there but have gotten darker it's at full body and full strength (unless I'm getting nicked out? Lol). As I claimed earlier this one needs to be smoked in peace as a special stick. Haven't really been able to ever age these but I'm thinking now I may need to get a couple more boxes and hide em down deep....still one of the very best smokes in the world in my opinion and the best 1.2 hour out there. Final thoughts: -Both cigars had perfect draws and construction and with the PC rolled a tad tighter. -flavors were very similar with the PC being more complex and engaging, the BF more savory and smooth - I killed em at the band...the same place they ended me, I'm utterly sated and need some bbq! -thanks again foh for enabling me all the joy! Cheers!!! Ben 7 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
