Karl Malone Barrel Aged

First-Time, First Puffs today… and it wasn’t bad…
Earthy Woody and Nutty. A very pleasant start to from the Barrel-Aged Tobacco in this cigar. The retrohale offers no spice, but wood notes are coming to me.

At the halfway point woody notes still abound through a perfect draw. The retrohale now has a bit of a black pepper spice kick to it now.

At the final third, not much has changed. I’m thinking that this is a good first effort from Mr, Karl Malone. A decent and enjoyable cigar.

Would I smoke it again?…. At $9.50 for this Robusto, probably not, but I wouldn’t turn one down if you offered it to me. I had to try it and I’m glad it did.
