Free sampler review 5-pack- Review # 5

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

Packaging: Unknown
Dimensions: 7x44 maybe?
Date issued: Unknown
Date smoked: January 6th, 2004.
Accompanying drink: Ice Cold Water
Texture of capa: Wrapper was smooth, light brown
Color of capa: Light brown.
Color of capote: Binder was a soft brown
Color of tripa: The filler had a soft amber tone.
Construction: Roll had some tight spots in it. Had to massage a little bit.
Draw: The draw was perfect, despite tightness.
Combustion: Burn was perfect. I could stand this bad boy up even after a full inch and a quarter. (Come on, you know the trick!)
Total smoking time: About 1 hour.

Pre-light aroma: Vanilla, Cream, and hint of spice
Pre-light draw: Draw was beautiful.
Post-light aroma: Upon lighting, cocoa and vanilla tickled my nose.

Palate entry: First draw was heaven. For such a small stick, there was a LOT of smoke. Billowing, yet smooth.
Mid point: Midway through, mild body started to turn to medium. This smoke, though mild, had a lot of flavors. Vanilla, leather, and slight cinammon flavors. Not too overpowering, but not like smoking a toilet paper roll.
Latter stages: Mild-Medium bodied finish. Another nubber, despite my fondness of full bodied smokes. I really like this! It has been a while since I have said that about a "lightweight". Smooth finish, yet plenty of flavor.

Summary: This smoke lasted about an hour. Draw and burn was perfect throughout. Despite the mildness, the flavors made up for its lack of punch. Great cigar!
My Guess: Montecristo?
Thank you,

Thank you,
