Asylum 13 99 Problems Lancero

I was looking forward to sparking this “Aged” 99 Problems in Lancero by Asylum 13 Cigars that I found at The Stash Smoke Shop in Milwaukie, Oregon more than 6 months ago. I thought I was going to have a “matured” flavor-packed cigar today.

What started out with some promise barely made it to the forefront of my attention… after I sparked this 38 gauge Lancero dry smoke came thru a perfect open draw producing the amount of smoke I like to see and feel in my mouth. The tobacco flavors were… just tobacco flavors at the start and pretty much through the first half.

At the last third, something changed that made me sit up and pay attention… with woody notes and earthy tobacco flavors with a touch of cocoa and a retrohale of black pepper brought me a moment of promise. Overall though, I was nonplussed.

I’ve got another one resting in the TupperDor, but I’m not holding my breath. This should have been ready to smoke by now. Oh well.
