REVIEW NOTES

20 months age turned this very rustic and crooked stick into a real winner, bringing out a much more nuanced, complex, and subtle blend of delicate baker spice, bread, cereal grains, graham cracker, cedar and cinnamon flavors than when originally released. Retrohale showed much less burn and pepper than before and pairing with coffee brought out richer and longer finish. Burn was abit faster than expected with very loose pack but stayed fairly even with only minor touchups ‘required’ and ash held 1 inch despite being quite flakey. Much less oily than before with alot less sweetness, molasses or chocolate but richness still held on fairly well while the cereal grains, graham cracker, and cinnamon were much more pronounced with a toastier retrohale that contained alot less pepper burn. Much more “Cubanesque” than before but I did miss a bit of the darker and coffee notes and given how much the pack loosened up and the smoke time shortened as a result, I think these may have gotten just past peak time so I recommend smoking them sooner than later, certainty before the 2 year age. Recommend smoking them now as a morning smoke with lightly milked coffee that’s not too strong or bitter. Very enjoyable!
