Review Notes: This is one fo the best sticks I have smoked! Beautiful smooth, tawny beige wrapper with minimal veins. Excellent construction with no soft spots. Delicious prelight aroma. Prelight draw hinted of sweet leather and raisins. Very easy light. Smooth draw. Razor sharp burn without the need for correction the entire stick. Slightly flakey gray-white ash with tons of creamy, billowy smoke. Started with sweet leather, nuts, and mild tobacco in the first third. This was joined by mild cedar, grass, and a hint of vanilla in the middle third. The flavors became even more intense in the last third, as an herbacious quality joined the fray of flavors. All in all, this was an outstandingly complex, creamy, smooth smoke that matched my preferred flavor profile perfectly (this stick is from 5/01). If smoked slowly (to truly enjoy all the nuances), this may take you about 2 hours to finish, but it is worth it! Paired well with HC7 rum.
