- 1 hour, 25
- 2 weeks in my
humidor at 67/68rh
- Fairly sharp, two minor
touchs up in final third.
- Lots of
smoke on draw, normal smoke at rest.
- Firm for the first half, somewhat flakey the second half.
Nice firm canon, no soft spots, feels somewhat lighter in hand than expected. Nice wrapper with no
prominent veins. Well rolled (I forgot to check the cap!)
Pre-light produced primarily traditional barnyard and a light earthy aroma. Now a dislaimer!
Had you watched me light this cigar, you would think it was the first cigar I ever smoked!
To be fair, I was using a new torch, and the sun was low and in my eyes......to make a long story
short....I bungled the light somewhat, and torched the wrapper a bit like a freakin noob! So the
initial light up wasn't perfect, and the cigar's burn started off a bit wonky, but self-corrected well
before I was an inch in.
The first third featured some dryish wood notes, with a hint of nuts now and again. Retrohale was
absolutely buttery smooth, with no bite or even the slightest hint of pepper notes. On the mild side of
medium in body and strength.
