Another report with pictures in black and white, another tasting evening, another outstanding good cigar: Bolivar Churchill A/T from 2001. I know that there are a lot of rumors especially about the years 1999 to 2001 in regards of quality, taste etc. I had many cigars which proved that the cigars from that period are (at least now) amazing cigars, this one was another very good example of an excellent cigar!
14 years old, stored in a aluminium tubo with a very limited aeration. The result: on one hand this cigar still has some typical aromas of a young cigar but on the other hand the smoke is very creamy and smooth. It's definitely an example which shows that cigars and blends have changed significantly over the last decade, nowadays you won't be able to find a cigar of that quality (or at least it will be more than difficult!).
The detailed reviews you can find again on feltedhat.com, where all the tasting sheets are saved as a pdf file. The outlook for the next smoke is also very promising as there is the chance to smoke a very special and limited cigar, stay tuned for that at the end of November.
