Skittles (keinreis) was able to make it to Chicago last week for the Herf festivities. While there, he smacked me with one of the cigars that he had made on Drew Estates' Cigar Safari earlier this year (I believe....as he has been to Nica THREE times now). You only get 10 of these cigars when you have your blend of choice made on the trip. I told him that I would do a review for him, since he gave me one of these rare cigars.
I hadn't had a smoke in a couple of days....been too hot up here to sit outside and smoke...so my palate was nice and fresh. Overall, I enjoyed the cigar. It was medium to medium-full cigar in terms of strength. The flavors were good, but as I noted, the first half was pretty dry on the palate. I drank a good amount of water during the review.
Nice job with the cigar, Scott. Thanks again.
