Popular Post CaptainQuintero Posted May 27, 2019 Popular Post Share Posted May 27, 2019 Treating myself with one of these as a reward for a long week of just old fashioned back slogging work in the garden lifting stumps, digging up turf and shifting a lot of soil, not to mention the infamous washing line post! I haven't touched this box for probably 4/5 years but now I've finished the last of my Tres Petit Corona this seems as good an opportunity as any. Perfect draw, nice oily wrapper. First third takes a little while to get going, it's rich but not much more than good quality tobacco. A tad disappointing. I wish I could add more but this is all I'm being given ? Second third and it's finally got going, reasonably unforgivable in such a small cigar, but at least it's here now. Medium full in body, lots of buttered leather, toffee/butterscotch notes too. No cream at all, given the age I usually find Partagas gets bucket loads. Final third and the butterscotch has gone, just back to leather and decent tobacco. It's certainly not bad but it's not going to win any prizes for personality and greatness; utterly one dimensional. I've found the Clive Owen of cigars 85/100? It's been marked down purely on the fact that the standards are usually set so high, when it struggles to meet them then it's getting marked down more so than a regularly average cigar would get. I suppose the reverse of a cigar punching way above it's weight getting much better scores because it isn't supposed to reach greatness but has managed it. I'm disappointed to say the least. It's one of those examples of everything on paper being right but it just not coming through on the day. 10 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
