Here is this weeks review, let me know what you think.
Cigar- Victor Sinclair Triple Corojo Toro. ( 6x50)
Lighter- Ronson Jet-Lite
Cutter- Means Sardine
Drink- Hancock's President Reserve Single Barrell Bourbon
PreLight- The cigar is presented beautifully, it is double banded with the upper band being very detailed. The cigar itself is a very light orange which is seen a lot with Corojo wrappers. There are quite a few veins throughout the wrapper and the stick is little lumpy. The smell is of spicy tobacco.
Initial Light- The first puff gives me a huge blast of earth, with a bit of a unpleasent charcoal like finish. Hope this isn't a sign of ithngs to come.
1st Third- About a 1/4 inch in the char taste goes away, but the earth remains. There is just a hint of black pepper spice on the back of the palet. About an inch in and the spice really picks up. There is a bit of a floral note that I am used to with the Corojo sticks I've smoked in the past. The spicy/floral stays until the first third is gone.
2nd Third- As the second third picks up, so does the strength. I can def tell that this is a medium-full bodied stick. The spice and floral is still there, but the earthiness has appeared again. For the first time the burn becomes a little uneven, but quickly fixes itself within a couple draws. As I approach the halfway mark I must say I am suprised how much I am enjoying this stick. The cigar stays the same as I appoach the final third I have to fix the burn but the profile stays the same.
Final Third- The amount of pepper is amazing now, I'm talking DPG pepper here. There is a good amount of toasty wood flavor coming through now. As stupid as this sounds it taste like a campfire smells. Approaching the final stretch the strength is beginning to get me but it is too good to put down.
Final Stretch- The tooth pick comes out. It finishes with pepper and earth.
Overall- This a suprising smoke, especially considering that I picked up a fiver for $7. I will def be picking up more.
As always let me now what you think.
