    Sounds like it could use some age.

    That’s exactly what I thought (“it could use some age”). How much humidor time did this one have? I wonder what 6 months in the humi would do to this smoke.

    As with all my cigars, I try to give them ample resting time before smoking them for review purposes. This one was purchasd in January of this year and smoked this month so it had a good 9 months in my humidor. I can’t tell you how long it was in the shop before I purchased it. I remember the box in the cigar shop being half empty when I bought it.

    My friend who travelled with me still has the one he purchased and I’ve agreed to trade with him. SO I will leave that one until the spring and perhaps do a follow up review at that point to see if these simply need resting time which might be the “fix” considering the strength of this cigar. However, I didn’t get any amonia so I’m thinking that it’s perhaps not the relative youth of this cigar but the strength that needs rest to mellow out a bit. One never knows though so I will submit observations when I smoke the next one IF I notice some mellowing of the spice with another 6 months of rest.

    Regards
