NightHawk:Are these bundled right off the rolling table with no factory aging at all?
beatnic:I had one ROTT. I'm no expert, but it was somewhat harsh? It was peppery, but also some other factor. I think I'll just let them rest. They may still be sweating ammonia. Tasty wrapper.
granneja:Don't forget to review and give your opinion if they are a buy or not!!! I was wondering about these and whether they are better than the GH V. 2002 or the 1844.
Rhamlin:If their shipped straight off the rolling table and not aged at all, would putting them in your humi affect the taste of your other cigars when they start releasing all that ammonia ?
granneja:Good question. I was wondering that myself. I would think that it would have some effect. Maybe one would put them in a separate humi?
granneja:Thanks JJ, I thought I might of seen something about it...couldn't remember if it was here or somewhere else. It seems like we have several posts about the fresh rolled going at this time.
I think if I had some to be safe I would put them in a separate humi to spend some resting time.
Alex Svenson:These are not fresh off the table and did undergo the proper aging in the bodega. That said, this is made with many lower priming leaves so they require much less down time before they are ready to ship which is what gave us the idea for fresh roll. They do embody a lot of the flavors one would come to expect from a cigar right off the table.
fla-gypsy:I have burned through about 10 of these now and there is a lot of variation and inconsistency. Some were quite good, a couple down right not good. I think aging is really the answer for these, too bad as they would make a good knock around cigar but I'm not going to hold on to $2 cigar the length of time it takes to fix them. The $2 cigars I buy are for smoking now, stuff that cost more I stick down in the bottom and let take a long nap
JudoChinX:Sounds like few are too impressed with this cigar, especially for an AJ. Still, there are certain expectations with a two dollar smoke that we need to keep in mind. Definitely a value stick.
