Review Notes: I had this aging in the bottom of a humidor for the past 3 years and thought it would blow me away by now, but it seemed to actually LOSE flavor during it's resting... Has anyone else experienced this? I'm confused! My notes from '06 were of plenty of spice and sweetness, with lots of leather and a sweet, floral aroma. The burn was off, and the draw was tight, but I liked it a lot and figured time apart would fix the issues. Smoked his brother and found him to be terribly lacking in any of the spice and intensity of flavor. They didn't get better or more subtle and complex, they just disappeared. Same flavors, but muted and dull. I did notice a lot more creaminess, though. The aroma was just a lifeless earthy smell with floral hints and not much else for the entire stick. The burn issues were still there, too. 3 years @ 67% RH didn't do a thing for the canoeing and dead spots. I'm really disappointed. I should've just smoked them all back in '06. To be fair, I will rate it based on my first experience.
