Not really sure about the secret fermentation process but I love it. This is a wonderfully spiced cigar that is smoking well probably in the humi for a year. This cigar lasted about 7 holes; we played 36 and I lit this baby up at the start of our last nine.
On the tenth the cigar got going nicely as a bombed my drive to the right of the fairway and left myself a 60 chip up from the rough. The chip was a disappointment that came up short and well birdie to bogie sucks, but it happens. The 11th was a cut down par 3 as they are doing a ton of work on the course, so some sections are closed. This hole gave me trouble in the morning, but a few spicy puffs later my mood was great. The reinado robusto really hit the spot. From tee to green was 175 with the wind going from right to left. Earlier, I put it right but this time, BAMM! on the green, one crappy roll later, in the hole, Par. I carried this smoke around with me because at this point I was more into smoking a stick than swinging one, but I was playing well.
Next up was the par 5, long and straight a bunker on the left and new water on the right, right where your ball is going to land, evil. I took the driver out anyway and put it twenty yards past the hazards- sweet- middle of fairway. My second I pushed left off the fairway but plenty of room, a chip up and a putt- Birdie. Cigar in mouth the entire time, great! The next was the par 3 13th, 135 yards, green surrounded by bunkers. - Same as before long and right, but no bunker, chipped up, putt from 5 feet, in the hole!! Another par, playing really well focusing on my stick. This cigar gave me a lot of smoke and flavor, even at times giving me a fruity taste- kind of crazy but true. I really like these.
On to a shorted par four- drove the green with my 4 iron, chipped up to a temp green picked the ball up and went to the 15th- it was only 20$ with a cart unlimited golf- so I got what I paid for- great day so far. The 15th was a short par 3, 100 yards with water and a new sand trap that wraps around the back. The 56 degree comes out of the bag- nice and easy… short. Chip it up; my chipping was really keeping me in it, one putt- par. Puff my way to the next- the stogie is providing a lot of smoke and I’m getting comments from the non-smokers that it smells good, one guy asked me for a puff- Is that weird? - I gave him one, I know him well, but I still think it’s kind of weird. The 16th is a 375 yard par four bending to the left. Unfortunatly I hit a natural fade and on this one it killed me, I really over did it as it rolled to the center of the 17th. One 18-degree hybrid later back in business- through the trees and a chip up. Chipped it up with a nice roll but 2 putts later Bogie- crap! This stogie was getting to the awesome stage- about an inch long. I love those cigars, there so good you never want them to end, but of course they do. The 17th is a par four back the over way with the drive of the day, I left myself a 30 yard chip, which I cut thin and put it into the new bunker behind that par 3 15th green. Popping it out of the sand I went to the other side- stay positive, a chip up and a one put, bogie. Eagle chip to bogie- crazy game. The smoke was down to the fingertips burning stage as I puffed it till I would have been smoking my tongue; it had to go out. The 18 was another shortened hole that we just tee’d it up and chipped to the area and picked up our balls.
What a great day. I smoke 4 stogies yesterday with this one being the best for last. It really delivered and I think focusing on it instead of my game really helped me perform.
