Review Notes: This 5 x 44 stick with box code RPO JUN 01 came dressed in a Colorado wrapper with a reddish hue with minimal veins. Mild tooth was seen. A triple cap adorned the head. Construction was solid with no soft spots. Hefty in the hand. Easy light. Smooth draw. Even burn without the need for relights or corrections. Gray ash. Started immediately with cedar, spice, and a strong tannic quality. The tannic quality continued into the first part of the first third, but then gave way to flavors of wood, white pepper, grass, flora, and a hint of burnt cinnamon and ginger. By the end of the first third, the woody taste became noticeable sweeter and a light cocoa flavor was noted. In the middle third, wood and cream came to the forefront, with a hint of grass and licorice. A pleasant tangy flavor was also evident. In the last third, however, the tanginess turned into a bitter harshness, and charred wood was the only discernable flavor. All in all, this medium-bodied one hour 20 minute smoke was very nice in the first 2/3s, but did not stick the landing. Still a nice cigar, though. Paired with water.
