Review Notes: A very pleasant experience! This EL box code FDO 11/04 sported a tremendously toothy thick dark chocolate wrapper with minimal veins. Excellent prelight aroma. Solid construction without soft spots. Easy light. Smooth draw. Even burn without the need for relights or corrections. Gray ash. Tons of white smoke. This stick started immediately with spice, floral notes, and a hint of white pepper. This transitioned in the first third to a melange of wood, flora, berries, warm leather, and a hint of orange peel. The middle third brought mild cocoa, citrus, and more floral and spice notes that characterize a classic RyJ flavor profile. A toasted tobacco taste mixed with mild menthol and a tanginess was found in the last third. All in all, this full bodied 1 hour 40 minute smoke was most enjoyable and contained the classic RyJ flavors that I love, with a few added complex notes. Although young, it will surely mature into an EL that is worthy of the moniker, in my opinion. Paired well with HC7 rum. Bought a box.
