clearlysuspect:Sorry. This was a pretty simple post from my cell phone as I waited to tee off on the par 3 sixth hole on the NAS Patuxent River, MD course.
I never smoked a Churchill on the golf course before, but I think it's all I'll smoke from now on while I"m out there. The R4 lasted the entire front nine. I never had any burn issues with it even though there was a strong breeze coming off the Chesapeake all day long.
I thought the flavor profile and body were perfect for the occasion. It was strong enough to offer a calming, soothing affect, but not so much to distract you from your game by making you light headed. The same can be said about the flavors. There was a steady stream of toast and leather, cream, with no spice. I enjoyed the flavors from start to finish but they were never so overwhelming or exciting that they drew attention from my tasks at hand.
I'd rate this as a 6 (1-10 scale) for cigars to sit, relax, and enjoy. I'd rate this as an 8 for a golf course cigar.
