Jay's Humidor 4,90€. 2 Stück Mitte Oktober 2016 nackt eingelagert. Erste am 8.11. geraucht. Herrliches, feingeadertes, sehr dunkles Deckblatt, mittelfest bis weich gerollt, Ring klebt am Deckblatt, sonst sehr gut verarbeitet. Viermal Schiefbrand , Zug und Rauchvolumen gut. Erster Zug kommt stark, dann sehr mild (!), komplexe, dunkle Aromen, null Bitterkeit oder Pfeffer, eher cremig, Asche symmetrisch und fest. 60 Minuten Leckerness. Hatte mich auf ein Nikotindrama eingestellt. Vielleicht ist fünfjähriges Agen plus Lagerzeit beim Händler zuviel des Guten (bzw. für mich persönlich genau richtig). Die Toro kostet übrigens nur einen Euro mehr - sehr verlockend!
ZigHick (4.9€) Medium strength. Taken into account that this is a maduro I would even say it is mildly strong. While this is not the most complex cigar i've smoked, it is definitely one of the better ones. I cannot exactly put my finger on one of the tastes that goes along all the way with this cigar but it is a good one. While it burns down evenly the draw is not really good imo I have to work a little bit too hard to get smoke out of it. I might, no.. I WILL try this one again in the future if possible...
English John This maduro from Honduras lasted a lot longer than The Lite corona which I noted at about 65 minutes and this one was heading for two hours, perhaps I am a slow smoker after all but it did need several relights. That could be due to the humidity in my garage which was about 75% today. This corona comes in at 5.5" with a ring gauge of 52. The maduro wrapper is from Costa Rica and the filler from Nicaragua. The wrapper is the usual dark chocolate brown you would expect from a maduro but it has a satiny finish with definite though not raised veins. The scent is a rich mocha. This was a well packed and firm stick with no soft spots and appeared to be very well made. Being from The Edge range it just has a discrete band around the foot that just slips off. It cut nicely with no raggedy edges and the cold draw was easy and tasted mild and leathery with just a hint of the mocha. It lit up nicely and burned slowly with a sharp edge and a light grey ash that dropped off after a centimetre, about 12 minutes in. The exhaled smoke had a fruity aroma to it and the inhaled flavour was smooth, mild and leathery with a slight sweetness that built up and lingered in my mouth. After about half an hour I was delighted to get a definite hint of chocolate but sadly it didn't last. The flavour got a bit peppery towards the end and I was happy to leave it at an hour and 45 but could have stretched it out to two hours. This one won't be on my buy list but I certainly wouldn't turn one down.
