Smoked Saturday 16 January 2010. Age unknown. I think it has been in the humidor since 23 September 2009. More reviews here.
It’s been a while since I smoked one of these, as despite their popularity I never found them particularly interesting. Unfortunately, this one did little to change that view. The pre-light draw and smell were pleasant but very mild. I did not experience much flavour progression either when smoking it, but did experience severe burn problems the entire way through the cigar. I refuse to believe this was down to lighting technique as it also struggled to stay alight. Most likely still adjusting to lowering the humidity slightly in my humidor ie. my fault.
Only a couple of pictures as I thought little point in documenting the burn when it was continuously being touched up with a flame.
I’ll get a couple more to try and leave them to settle properly without messing with the humidity this time…
