More reviews here. Box code was TEB ENE 08. Smoked Friday 21 November.
After my enjoyable experience with the Le Hoyo du Depute in the pub earlier I fancied another cigar. This time the RASS got picked. This was a typical RASS. I’d been reading other reviews beforehand as I was trying to pick out what the dominant taste was that I couldn’t quite ascertain previously. Fruit stood out-but it’s not a sweet fruit note. I’d read cherries, but I’d almost describe it more as a rich raspberry.
Draw and construction were good. The wrapper looks oilier in the picture than it actually was. I had burn problems with this. Whether that was down to my current habit of storing the boxes propped open with a matchstick ie. uneven moisture distribution throughout the cigar, or just poor lighting technique I don’t know, but I’m going to close them up for a while and see if it makes a difference.
