Review Notes: An excellent smoke. This particular stick from '99 (TDC CCUG) appeared to be wrapped with milk chocolate with a mild toothiness, to boot. Almost no noticeable veins and the traditional triple cap. Good construction without soft spots. Easy light. Slightly firm draw. Uneven burn in the first third that required one correction, but then evened out throughout the remainder of the stick. Gray-black ash. Started with musty wood, which eased its way into honeyed tobacco, mild spice, mild peppercorn, worn leather, and cream in the first third. The middle third brought notes of oak, chestnut, leather, and a slight tannic quality which betrayed its age. There was also a noticeable increase in flavor at this point. In the last third, toast, spice, and mild earth were painted on a woodsy backdrop. I had thought I also tasted seared flesh, but soon realized that I was done with the cigar and, indeed, it was my fingers. ;) All in all, this one hour 15 minute medium-bodied, smooth, complex smoke was very enjoyable. Aside from the burn issues in the first third that detracted somewhat from the experience, the remainder of the cigar was a delight. Paired well with Ron Matusalem rum.
