REVIEW NOTES

Quick review... Tonight I smoked a Paul Garmirian Gourmet Series for the first time. The cigar was firmly packed, and it had a bit of a tight draw. The wrapper sported several large and lumpy veins. It started off with a lot of flavor and gradually mellowed out. The flavors were mainly in wood, nuts, and leather categories, with a hint of black liquorice. I didn't find it terribly complex. A bitterness crept in around halfway through that I did not enjoy. I will say that the cigar was one of the spiciest cigars that I've ever smoked and it really made my tongue tingle. The cigar burned great, and the body of the smoke was very full as well. It coated the inside of my mouth, drying it out, and caused me to constantly chug water. The strength was light-to-medium. Overall, I enjoyed the Gourmet Series, but not enough to go looking for this cigar again.
