The Glenlivet 12 is poured and a La Flor Dominicana Cameroon Cabinet is lit at pool side in Orlando on what passes for a Winter day in Florida. I’m sitting here in a t-shirt while the natives are running around in coats complaining about the 60 degree temps and my buddies in Seattle are gloomily facing another round of snow. It’s a delightful change of pace from brainstorming last month about how and where to smoke comfortably. Anyway, it sure makes this Halogen webinar I have for to do for work a lot more fun!
The Cameroon wrapper from Africa and the Dominican and Nicaraguan tobaccos inside make for a very creamy and smooth cigar with just a hint of spice combined with a wheat toast flavor — very nice.
The wrapper is a lovely tan leather color with no visible seams and a triple cap. The prelight aroma is exquisite — it smells like a humidor filled with great cigars.
I v-cut this stick but lopped it off quickly as the oils began gathering and causing a tarry taste. I’m a tad gun shy at the moment about the v-cutter due to this issue with a few other cigars that have been oily, too. So that fixed it immediately and it’s why I carry 3 different cutters. As my Grandpa used to say, “The right tool for the right job!” which is why he had a dozen different sized hammers.
The burn is razor sharp, the draw is perfect and it puts out plenty of smoke — sweet!
I’ll bring some of these back with me to Seattle in case anyone would like to experience it.
