Review Notes: Pays to keep some of these around. (Or the ERDM Flor de Llaneza, since they're essentially the same stick.) To me, this is what a CTBL is supposed to taste like. A little sweet, a touch of peppery zing, earth, some chocolate, a sweet hint of nuts... hazelnut, maybe. The smoke develops an almost syrupy texture. Not the best smoke, nor the cheapest, but it's as reliably good as anything out there. Sometimes it's exactly what I'm craving. Age matters with these, BTW. They can be a little sharp when young. A year or more balances them nicely.

"Good news for Scotty..."

Review Notes: FWIW, the box I'm working on right now didn't "turn the corner" for around a year. Originally, they were fine but ordinary. Had one about two weeks ago from the same box (which is now two years old), and it was spectacular. Medium body, perfectly rounded flavors, much as you described your "April stick." So I'm bullish on the aging potential on your box, Scotty.
