Box code OPM AGO 09. Received and smoked 8 May 2010.
Considering its youth and the fact that it had just arrived in the post, this was remarkably enjoyable. Long and slender, I was expecting draw problems. It was a little tight, but going on the way it smoked I suspect that was more due to them being shipped at a higher humidity to cope with the journey.
Nothing special to look at but then these are pretty cheap. Took about 70 minutes to smoke. I had trouble at the end getting any smoke out but I expect that will be sorted with some rest. Flavourwise, they have that typical milky caramel Por Larranaga thing going on, but these seemed a bit more perfumed than the Petit Corona. Almost a hint of Parma Violets in there!
