Smoked the H. Upmann #2 this evening in the comfort of my own home. The wrapper showed tiny traces of green, so this stick could have done with more months in the humidor, but was still a delicious, mellow smoke that was very accessible to this newbie. The draw was very easy, and I could have cut it much less generously than I did.
So, since Friday, I've sampled the Sancho Panza Belicosos, Montecristo #4, Punch Punch, Ramon Allones Specially Selected and the H. Upmann #2. Where once I really didn't get it
, I'm now gaining a definite appreciation, thanks particularly to Matt, Globe and FtB.
