    My mini review of the H. Upmann 1844 Reserve Maduro Belicoso 6.1 x 52.

    Nice looking stick with two large veins. Fairly light weight nice sniff. Lick was sweet and a bit salty. after the cut the pre light draw was just the way I like..... not too loose not too tight and it stayed that way to the end.

    Since it wasn't windy at all tonight I lit this one with wooden matches !! I usually use my torch cuz of the wind but tonight I used 3 matches. Lots of nice smoke with an initial peppery flavor. Not too much flavor in the first third. The second third gained some nice tasty earthy flavor and maybe a hint of cocoa. Needed a little touch up along the way but just a nice relaxing cigar.

    Since my previous cigar was the Pvnisher (you can read my HOT HOT HOT review) and I have been doing a lot of full powerhouses, this was a nice change of pace. I would say medium body.

    It took 1 hour 40 minutes (I smoke slow) and I really enjoyed the last third. Good to the very end.

    Overall I liked it a lot and would rate it maybe 4 out of 5. Doesn't make my top ten but darn close. If you are looking for something a little different this was a nice change.

    Thanks for all the birthday wishes ..... it made for a very relaxing and enjoyable evening.
