This is a repost from WyldKnyght's Blind Taste Test Review Pass. Part Deux!!!

I decided to repost this review so others who may have missed that thread, will get a chance to read it and see how much fun blind reviews are. Thanks Craig for having this Pass.

You can see where I started and how wrong I was in the end. So without further adieu...

Beautiful #19





5x42ish
Great chocolate brown, oily, toothy wrapper with minimal veins. Dense pack and firm feel with no noticeable soft spots. Very light hay smell.
Punch cut the cap and it gave a nice but firm draw, with almost no flavor pre-light.
Toasted and lit with a soft flame lighter.


1/3 The flavors were pretty light, earthy and chocolatey with a slight bitterness. No pepper. The flavors really came out in the retrohale, giving off a great mocha flavor and aroma. The burn was razor sharp.


2/3 Flavor profile stayed the same but picked up a moderate amount of pepper. The burn stayed razor sharp and I tapped the ash off around the halfway point.


3/3 At this point the bitterness was gone and the mocha changed to full on coffee. The burn stayed razor sharp all the way to about an inch left where I put it down. The total burn time was just about an hour and a half.


I liked this cigar but the bitterness was a bit of a detraction. Not a real big deal but I thought it should be mentioned. The construction and burn were just awesome. If I were to guess, I'd guess this was a Man O War Puro Authentico. Am I right?
