10th Anniversary Reserva Limitada by Flores y Rodriguez

Today was my first time with the Flores y Rodriguez 10th Anniversary Reserva Limitada. I didn’t know what to expect, so what arrived was definitely a change-up from what I’ve been smoking the past few days.

After reading what was inside; Jalapa (Nicaraguan) and 7-year aged Piloto Cubano (Dominican) fillers, a Dominican Olor binder, and an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper leaf for the FyR 10th Anniversary, I had hope.

The first draw was nothing exceptional; a dryer smoke than what I’ve been used to. Maybe I’ve been spoiled. I did not pick up any spice or other baking spices that I’ve heard other have detected.

Overall it was a very “Mature” smooth smoke. I say “Mature” because of the aged Piloto Cubano. I think there are subtleties that missed on this journey. I will try another one in the future.
