As I lit the Romeo y Julieta Belicosos I got some floral notes that reminded me of a Mille Fleur. However, this didn’t last long. The first third was mainly about milk chocolate with a slight pepper at the end. No more peppers in the second third and the mix of sweet notes and nuts reminded me of nougat. Throughout the the first and second third the flavours seemed to be a bit masked by a slight dry harshness that could by best described as hay or straw. The final third was more about cacoa and occasionally some grassy notes.
The H. Upmann Magnum 46 took a little while to get the flavours going. While the white pepper slowly faded away I got flavours that reminded me of toasted bread with some salty and savoury hints. Once in a while I would get some cedar too. Passed the midway point the toasted bread remained and the salty and savoury hints were replaced with some sweet vanilla notes. Near the end, just for a brief moment the sweetness picked up.
Throughout the entire Quran the number 19 kept appearing in the most elegant ways. The 19 code for me proofs the existence of a God as I believe it’s beyond human capabilities or the possibility of coincidence.
The Hoyo de Monterrey – Le Hoyo des Dieux right off the bat and all the way up to the midpoint the cigar gave off sweet and warm flavours like gingerbread and chocolate. For a brief period around the midpoint the sweet tastes moved more to the background to make room for some grass and mushroom notes with a sometimes lingering aftertaste of cedar.
The Cohiba Panetelas gave off a mix of sweet and tangy flavours making it quite the treat. It started out with some sweet vanilla tastes. Then the tangy flavours like ginger and citrus made their entrance. It all ended with a big mocha and chocolaty finally.
The Partagas Serie P No. 2 was full bodied and yet I had a hard time indentifying the flavours due to my poor snacks and drinks choices. So I made myself a coffee instead, put on a coat and moved outdoors (leaving my snacks and juice behind). For some reason I tend to enjoy cigars better outdoors. This is when the cigar came to life for me.
The Montecristo Especial No. 1 stays quite consistent with liquourice and aniseed being the main flavours. Lovely cigar, each and every time.
One of the best cigar I ever had was a Montecristo No. 2. Unfortunatly I didn’t know how old it was. As I was having the cigar I was laughing like an evil villain. That’s how good it was. Since then I’ve been chasing the same high without any luck.
As I sat down in the garden overlooking my vegtables and enjoying my breakfast the Montecristo Especial no. 2 gave off loads of hazelnut and vanilla flavours while the birds were chirping away. Outside the bounderies of my garden life must have been proceeding at normal speed.
