Broke into my year of the rat box I got a couple months ago. This taste softer then most unicos. Pretty linear flavor profile, full body, medium strength. Dark almost bitter coffee, worn leather, semi sweet cocoa, soft damp earth, black pepper. Retrohale was mainly earth and pepper, a little sweetness. Had like a sweet and spicy thing going on. I loved it

Do you prefer worn leather over fresh leather, or baseball glove leather? Personally, I’m not a fan of worn leather, but that may be due to a traumatic childhood event. It involved my grandfather’s favorite old leather recliner and his (old) testicles slipping out of his boxers on to the worn leather. I never looked at that chair the same way.
Nice review!

I always think of an old worn out wallet. When I was little, for some reason grandpa would give me his wallet to chew on 🤷
Honestly, that’s what I often get, or think about when I pick up that nuance. I used to chew on the laces of my baseball glove when I was bored in the outfield as a youngster.
