After 30 years, I'm starting to get the hang of it.
I've been working to develope my ability to discern the various taste nuance's when smoking cigars. Not just seperating out tastes but putting a name to them. For whatever reason it is a very hard thing for me to do. Maybe dull taste buds? Anyway, I've just completed a Acid Kuba-Kuba and without a doubt I tasted coconut, more specifically toasted coconut, like when you eat a toasted macaroon. I found myself putting the tip of my tounge...tunge...tung....(the thing in my mouth) on the end of the cigar while I drew (slowly) and had the smoke completely invelop it (the thing in my mouth) and wahla! toasted coconut!
The cigar, as I'm finding with most of the Acid maduro ones, was very good in all respects. The one negative was at the last 2" of cigar, it balooned out to half again its size and split the wrapper. Still smoke good but certainly lost points on the astetic catagory.
