The draw was absolutely perfect with just the right amount of resistance that I prefer.
I wasn’t sure what to expect from this twelve year old cigar, but I was a bit surprised that it still carried a profile with distinct flavor. Primarily creamy cedar with some black pepper, it was pretty good through the first two thirds. The final third fell off a bit with charred wood and bitterness. Construction was absolutely perfect which was a nice plus. I would say, if you have any of these kicking around your humidor, you should probably smoke them now as I don’t see them improving much more and you may miss out on a flavorful profile. This isn’t something to seek out as it is probably past its prime, but it was an enjoyable experience on the 4th of July for me.
