REVIEW NOTES

Ok so after Jeremy wrote a review of this I needed to take a poke at these... Look and Feel: Rather rectangular in shape and light colored, almost reminds me of a Drew Estate Waffe but thicker. Light and creamy on the look and minimal veins and splotches. Colored like Coffee with cream and almonds. A little spongy near the foot and the rest has perfect resistance when I give a quick pinch. First Half: Very smooth and mild almost like fresh vanilla and roasted walnuts thrown in. It's smoking rather quickly since its cold outside and windy but I'm going to keep on puffing. Hardly any burn om the retrohale just a tiny amount of pepper and that's it. Second Half: Ok now just as I said it wasn't spicy it really kicks up a notch and starts blazing. Moist hay and some licorice notes are coming through and reminding me of Jagermeister. Toasted nuts, cinnamon, and coriander are rounding out the middle and as I get closer to the end I am having some burn problems. Overall: Not a bad smoke but not my favorite from Mr.Patel. I did buy a few of these so I want to try another one in a few months to see how it compares. Thanks for the reference Jeremy, I love to explore and try different things so this was right up my ally for a change of pace.
