CCom Red Label

Smoked my first Red Label tonight. I enjoyed it... well at least the part that I was able to smoke. I loved the mild pepper and woodiness in the first third, and the gradual increase in spice and pepper as it progressed. Unfortunately a had a construction issue that prevented me from smoking the final third of the stick. Before I lit up, I noticed a strange hard spot right below the band point. I didn't really think too much of it until I was 45 minutes in, and started to notice how unevenly the stick was burning. I tried and tried to touch it up. Eventually I just gave up and decided to put it out, and perform an autopsy, and see WTF was going on in there. Turns out that the binder had a HUGE stem wrapped in it that ran from the cap up just past the band point (the end of which was the strange hard lump I had noticed.)

I'm talking full on stem, with a fat lump at one end. I will, however, be smoking another one if these in the future (gonna order some more CCom HB sticks soon) to give it another shot. I count this one has a fluke, a slight oversight in quality control ;)

Anyway, delicious stick.
