Weekend review; April 26th and 27th, 2008

I got the yard work done just in time before the rains hit! Nice day to sit inside and smoke cigars!

Montecristo White Churchill (7x54)

The initial light up had a blast of leather! The spice was close behind. Very good draw. The finish is long with a sweet aftertaste. The combination of leather and spice is very nice. This cigar has been sitting in my humidor for well over a year. It seems to have benefited from it. I've had this cigar before and was not impressed, but this time I really enjoyed it. I've seen these listed as full bodied, but I'd say they're medium at best. There were some pepper notes noticed at the 1/3 to 1/2 point. Much to my surprise this was a very good cigar. Nice flavor and great aftertaste!

Score: 92

After attending a wedding at 6pm I finished the day with a Rocky Patel Edge maduro toro. (previously rated)
