I've just been bouncing around on the Berry Bros. & Rudd website (its certainly safer than bouncing around the shop - potential for big bill...) Whilst looking at some of their information style pages I came across this really interesting 'flavour wheel'. Now, it is predominantly aimed at wine tasting, but many of the flavours which cigars remind us of are much the same as for wines (and they're all on the wheel anyway...)

I do hope that I never come across 'petrol' in a cigar - flames and petrol aren't two things I'd normally think worked in close proximity...

Flames and petrol do not mix, are you KIDDING ME? I remember a time when I was visiting Paris briefly and I came across a group of French army veterans. Petrol was cheap at the time and the opportunity was there........oh hang on.....private conversation maybe. LOL

Yep, can do without the 'petrol' too...but wouldn't mind getting the 'Bacon' :eating: Make it a mild stick, that way it will go well with coffee in the morning :coffeepaper:

That wheel of flavours is fascinating.
Thanks for posting it, Simon.

There are much better wheels, more suited to cigars…

The "fruity" section of that wheel is almost meaningless for cigars…

Will post other wheel(s) later…

If you find flavors of apple, pear, melon, peach, mango, lychee, strawberry, etc. in your Choix Suprêmes you must smoke fakes… :biggrin1:

I think I've detected slight notes of apricot/peach/mango - maybe not in CC's but NC's such as Davidoff & other lighter Dominicans. I definitely think slight blackcurrant tones are part of the Ramon Allones flavour profile - first noted with the RE Celestiales Finos being closely linked with woody/cedar/pencil shavings notes, as in a decent Medoc (less noticeable with RASS, but there in RASCC).

Nice thread guys.

I was waiting to get back on the PC to throw in the wheel I had, but Smallclub's is the same one, but bigger (she cried:p)


It's comforting to note that 'spicy' is in fact 'spicy'...phew:smile:

:nerd: Quite honestly, I think some of you are detecting the sweet, sweet fragrance of :canabis: Aunt Mary! :eyebrows:

The Wheel of Flavors will be a great aid to some of the newer :willy: members as they make up....:doh: errr, I mean, write up their reviews. http://serve.mysmiley.net/rolleye/rolleye0012.gif (http://www.mysmiley.net/free-laughing-smileys.php)


:catsmoker:


:juggle: Hey el Perro! I bet even you could draft a faux review with the aid of the wheel.

This is fascinating! Perhaps we should construct a wheel specific to cigars...? :mod:

The words "TABLE OF TOBACCO FLAVOURS" aren't specific enough for you?
