Smoking conditions: Excellent. Sunny and still late afternoon in my Autumn garden.

CIGAR: Juan Lopez
SIZE: Robusto
ORIGIN: Havana
BURN: Consistently good
ASH: Solid. Reached over two inches before it dropped onto me. I like that to happen!
SMOKE: Dense volume of sage-y lingering smoke
STRENGTH: Mild to strong. Majorly consistent throughout. No bitterness or heat.
FLAVOUR: Strong herbs. Wood. Vanilla. Sweet bacon aftertaste (imo).

Appearance 5 out of 5: Solid construction with a good squeeze factor. Nicely oily.

Aroma 4 out of 5: Quite a heavy aroma. Clingy. Gets to you even when you are smoking - which I love.

Burn 18 out of 20: I relit it twice but I was distracted by a toy.

Taste 65 out of 70: In my ballpark for a robusto which means there is a quality and depth to the taste that stays pleasantly with you through the smoke and remains equally pleasantly with you afterwards. (I'm deducting five points here because I've got to do that somewhere! ;) )

Total 92

Indebted to Dean's review format earlier, btw.

This was a cigar make I had no experience of. Thanks to COIV, I shall be on the look-out for more of these as the stick itself fitted my mood and the pleasantness of the circumstances. It joins other robustos I prefer.

My Motoroa died on me so I had just got back from Canterbury with a replacement contract phone and was arsing about. No other expression for it. This is the first thing I ever took on my Sony Ericsson C902. Shows the extent of the obsession, I suppose. And I know some of you get off on visuals. :smoke:

Can't rotate it. Welcome to Torticollis World. :biggrin1:
