Time of lighting: 5:20 pm (15")
The cigar was quite mild with a great draw!
We decided to take measurements every hour to see how the cigar progressed.
End of first hour: 6:20 pm (10 3/4")
At this point the cigar developed some spice.
End of 2nd hour: 7:20 pm (8")
At this point the cigar developed some caramel overtones. Together with the spice it made for a very enjoyable cigar.
There was a quick supper break from 7:20-7:35. A relight was needed.
Cigar relit: 7:35 pm
End of 3rd hour: 8:35 pm (4 1/2")
End of 4th hour: 9:35 pm (2 1/4")
Official end (when my fingers burned): 10:04 pm
Total cigar time: 4 hours 29 minutes!!!
That was quite an experience! I doubt I'll get a chance to smoke another monster like that for quite awhile! The cigar remained consistent with caramel and spice notes from the 2 hour point onward.
I have to give credit to our photographer, Connie!
