2001 Punch Rare Corojo Rothschild Review

Pre-smoke comments:

A 4.5x50, heavily box pressed Rothschild with a medium, veiny texture, medium texture cap, and a firm bunch with a nice Colorado Maduro wrapper.
Setting was at a table in the indoor smoking lounge for a rare occasion, due to the outside temperature of 31 degrees and a decent wind, so wanted a slightly warmer environment.

Smoke comments:

Even burn with a conical coal, and flaky grey ash.
Perfect draw and a subtle, faint, but fragrant aroma, and no burn in the throat.
Flavor was of unequal balance with mustyness dominating the earthy and woody flavors, of ample richness and mild strength and body.
No real aftertaste, and no sweetness, bitterness, or saltiness but a medium burn on the tongue and light sharpness.

Summary Comments:

Overall, of agreeable but common character and mild body, but I would rate it a good smoke with a score of 82 out of 100.
A little lighter on the mustyness to be more balanced with the earth and wood, would have definitely helped my opinion and score.
Not that I dislike the musty taste I get from most 10+ year old cigars typically, in fact it has grown on me and I kinda enjoy it, but as more of an underlying taste than being the most prominent one.
