Free sampler review 5-pack- Review # 4

Thanks to JazzNut for the form I am using and LastZap for the fiver:

Packaging: Unknown
Dimensions: Unsure
Date issued: Unknown
Date smoked: January 4, 2005.
Accompanying drink: Ice Cold Water
Texture of capa: Wrapper was smooth, dark brown, and oily
Color of capa: Dark chocolate brown.
Color of capote: Binder was a reddish leather.
Color of tripa: The filler had dark, brown color.
Construction: Roll felt perfect. LastZap, your concerns about storage are for naught.
Draw: The draw was perfect. From start to finish. I have never had a cigar rolled so perfectly. Again, humidity levels stored in has to factor in.
Combustion: Burn was perfect. Ash held forever! This was stored perfectly (I know repetitive, but I cannot help it).
Total smoking time: About 1.5 hours. I had more time to relax with this beaty so I tried to take my time.

Pre-light aroma: As disgusting as it sounds, manure (I think this is a good thing). This mixed with normal tobacco smells.
Pre-light draw: Draw was perfect. Not too loose, not too tight.
Post-light aroma: Upon lighting, bouquet of flora and spice filled the air. Mmmmmm!

Palate entry: First draw was like heaven. Mouthful of blissful smoke! First flavors were spice and floral tones. First 1/2 to 1" was subtle and mild. After 1.5", body and flavor began building up.
Mid point: At this point, body leaning to full side. Spiciness has faded. Leather and meat began to take over.
Latter stages: This bad boy finished strong. Good thing I had meat and taters before or I would be floored! Spice again took over. I love this!

Summary: Hard to write this summary as my head is spinning.Much like a good book, I could not put this cigar down! Or much like the RyJ slogan says, parting is such sweet sorrow. I did not think I could have a more pefect cigar than #3, but this one tops it! I cannot wait until #5.
My Guess: Camacho 11/18?
Thank you,

Thank you,
