Review Notes: This stick with box code PEL 7/01 is draped in a silky smooth Colorado wrapper with a beautiful reddish hue. There are minimal veins, virtually imperceptible tooth, and no soft spots. The familiar triple cap is present. Easy light. Perfect draw. Even burn without the need for relights or corrections. Gray-black ash and tons of whitish-blue smoke. Started with nuts and a slight grassy flavor. The first third saw a cornucopia of flavors, including tannic leather, sweet wood, and hint of vanilla, grass, and chocolate., There was also a noticeable saltiness, that when combined with the sweetness, seemed almost like “kettle corn”!! Delicious!!! The middle third brought a tangy toasted tobacco flavor with peppermint, leather, wood, and notes of grass. There was also a whisper of fruitiness in the background and even a smoky BBQ-type flavor. The tanginess increased as it was smoked. The final third saw a transformation towards charred wood, and a bitterness was noted, particularly in the last 1 ½”. I also felt the Vitamin N start creeping in at the very end. All in all, this one hour 20 minute medium-to-full bodied smoke was most enjoyable. The medley of flavors, hints, and nuances was delightful. Paired with ice water at the end of a long, hot day.
