Juan Lopez Seleccion No. 1/Starbucks Iced Caramel Cloud Macchiato + Baileys MOL Nov 18 (CCRW)

Recommended Posts

Drink: Starbucks Iced Caramel Cloud Macchiato + 2oz of Baileys

Smoke: Juan Lopez Seleccion number 1

First Third:

Toasted cedar/earth notes first third, hint of citrus retrohale.

Fighting uneven burn throughout the first third, half of this cigar wants to be at the second third already. Good sign of what’s to come?

Second Third:

Spiced wood/cedar earth notes in the second third, no sweetness/cocoa to be found. Hints of leather present as well. Definitely a poor performer compared to the rest of the JL1s I’ve had from this box. If this was the first experience I had from this box my expectations/appreciation for it would have been very different.

Could be the Iced Coffee/Baileys messing with my taste, I usually just drink iced water while smoking a cigar.

Final Third: 

Entering the final third the burn has evened out after a few touch ups, smoking smooth with very little spice, coffee/cocoa notes with a slight milk chocolate note on the retrohale. There has been a definite improvement as we have entered the final third.

Total Smoking Time: 65 minutes.

Cigar: 8/10

Drink: 6/10

Pairing: 6.5/10
