    I hope you’re joking I’ve heard this before about the Bolivar Short Bolivar Andorra RE, well burning plastic was what I heard. Doesn’t exactly fill me with confidence about the box I have.

    Err.. some people seem to like them but they're not for me. Think @Hookmaker has gone through a couple of boxes.

    I've only got a couple but there's definitely a taste I can only compare to burnt plastic to me, almost like the smell/taste of an electrical short in a plastic enclosure. Not as bad as it once was so hopefully just need 5 years down and that'll do but I'm not confident for my taste anyway!

    Interesting article/podcast here on tasting cigars
    https://www.cigarsense.com/018-a-sensory-exercise/

    more interesting was the note at the end of the email I received, regarding loss of taste as an early indicator of Covid-19 infection.


    the footnote reads

    After we recorded the episode, we read that studies in progress, also in Italy, have shown that the lowering of the sense of smell can be a sign of presence of Covid-19. Anosmia is the loss of the ability to perceive odors and flavors in the mouth. As coronavirus tests are scarse, you can use the exercise in this episode to understand that we really need isolation.

    Tbh I even struggle to separate coffee from chocolate sometimes... Not being a coffee drinker I just assume that what I'm tasting is 'kinda coffee-ish' if it's not quite chocolate.

    I also don't know what cream is supposed to taste like in a cigar

    I think of creaminess as when the smoke is thick, silky and plentiful.
    Stay smoky
