Montecristo Tubos 1970's
Posted 19 November 2008 - 09:30 PM
It was light in the hand and very firm when I tried to squeeze it. I didn’t want to squeeze too hard as I was afraid it might fall to pieces it was so old. The wrapper was slightly coarse and no oils to be found, actually was a bit dry looking. I wet the tip of the cap to let it soften a bit so hopefully the punch would cut through with no cracking. I slowly, carefully punched the cap and did have one small crack appear but nothing major at all. I found the draw perfect and a taste of old, stale tobacco.
With the foot toasted, I took my first draw and found the smoke extremely mild. So much so it was almost undetectable, delicate came to mind. I could taste a very faint hint of toasted nuts, but mostly a very dry hay. The finish was very clean with a very nice aftertaste. The burn was perfect on this smoke with a very light gray ash that held until I ashed it at about an inch.
Around the halfway mark, the very mild and creamy smoke started getting a bit floral and had a definite lemony zest to it. Again, extremely light or as mentioned, delicate. Towards the end I happened to notice a little bit of tar on my finger and then realized the tip was full of it. I was surprised to see so much of it, and such a strange reddish color. Glad I didn’t get that in my mouth!
I believe this smoke had definitely gone past it’s peak and lost some of it’s “kick”, however I’m absolutely thrilled that I had the opportunity to put fire to such a rarity.

How's the little one?
Little one is doing about the same. Past few days weren't too bad, but today wasn't one of the better days. Still haven't gotten her procedure scheduled either. Told us they'd let us know when the first appt comes available. Thanks for asking John!

Did any of the tar have any impact on flavor?
I don't believe it did. Now if I had stuck the tip of my tongue on that stuff....maybe so.

I'm still jealous, though.

Would you mind if I created some thin gelatin replicas of your fingerprints? I have to do some, err, withdrawing.
You'll have to make a deposit first cause there sure ain't nothing to withdraw anywhere with that fingerprint!

I pray that God brings healing to your little one and that you and yours find His peace.
