Review Notes: This 5 ˝” x 42 slightly box-pressed stick with box code PUL 5/01 sports a Colorado wrapper with fine hairs and minimal veins. The traditional triple cap is present. Solid construction without soft spots. Rich barnyard aroma on prelight. Easy light. Firm draw. Fairly even burn without the need for relights or corrections. Gray-black flakey ash. Started with mild pepper. The first third brought mild leather, nuts, and tobacco. The flavors were very subtle, indicating to me this could be an older cigar vs. a fairly indescript, almost bland, blend. The middle third saw the tobacco flavor assume a toasted quality, along with a slight woodsy taste and a slight “twang”. The last third introduced a very mild grassy note, more toasted tobacco, and a slight bitterness towards the end. All in all, this mild-bodied, one-hour smoke was nothing special for me. I kept waiting for flavors to intensify, introduce themselves, or open up, but alas this never happened in the sample I smoked. Paired with black coffee. Perhaps it would have done better with water…..
