I just had to redux this smoke. Everyone on the Stogie Geeks crew was talking about it. I read through several Top Ten lists for 2012 and this cigar was on the list. “The Blogs” as they are so cruelly and inaccurately labeled, were buzzing about this stick. So I smoked it again, on a really fresh palette. I took two days off from smoking and smoked this baby shortly after I ate breakfast with unsweetened tea as my drink. The result was really the same, the burn and draw were nice, but the flavors just weren’t there for me. It was a bland kind of experience, and lacked any real character. So, I just don’t get it, but maybe your palette will be different.
