Fine and Rare 2012
Wrapper is earthy with hints of cedar and chocolate. Cold draw is light with chocolate notes, the draw is perfect, not super loose and not tight by any means So this cigar started out pretty good. Tons of spice in the beginning. Really nice smoke production, thick white smoke full of flavor. The spice begins to fade and the eathiness beginds to come thorugh. Hints of dark chocolate start to shine through. It gets meaty and almost gamey as I continue to smoke it. The second third, the flavor stays the same, not much else is goign and tastes medium/full bodied. BUT I start to get light headed and really taking a punch in the gut that drives this into a full bodied intense smoke. I decide to slow down, right now im about and hour into the smoke with a good inch or so left. I slow down to try to and let myself calm down. Then it happens. I go green and have to puke. I have never. NEVER. gotten liek this smoking. last years did make me space headed when I finished but nothing like this. With an inch left i had to stop. This cigar is no joke. I warn you with this. Aside from getting sick, this cigar was decent. I do feel like i enjoyed last years more though. With an increase in price from last year I cant recomend this stick for everyone. and just so its clear, I smoke full bodied smokes regularly. Oliva V, undercrown, liga privada, LFD, Some heavy hitters in my rotation. This cigar took the cake though for strength. Damn.
