Ramon Bueso Olancho Vintage
Forum member AKPreacher supplied this episode’s featured cigar. Frankly, neither Craig nor I knew enough about it previously to give a great deal of detail. Of course we could offer preliminary inspection and description of its physical characteristics (which we do during the show), and describe it as we smoke it (also…during the show), but we weren’t intimately familiar with this line beforehand. Also, I never received any sort of press from the company – so, the following information comes from the Cigars International description:
“We’ve got an aged 2005 binder leaf from Talanga Valley, and a wide variety of long-filler leaves including selections from 2008 Nicaraguan Esteli, 2010 Honduras La Entrada, 2008 Honduran Jamastran, and 2003 Honduras Olancho. On top of all of that, the wrapper is a Colorado Oscuro Olancho, grown exclusively for this cigar. These leaves were purposefully fermented for a shorter amount of time than industry standard, and the experiment paid off with an absolutely unique flavor unlike any other cigar on the market.”
We kicked around a few stories and rumblings this week, but did not specifically cover anything indepth; we opted to let this episode progress as it may and talk a bit more about the Cigar of the Week.
What Else We’ve Been Smoking
Padrón Dámaso – I still love those connecticuts. By far the best balanced Connie I’ve ever smoked. The crisp bitterness is present in minor flavor alone and not at all in sensation or drying effect.
Ramon Bueso Habano Torpedo – An unbanded for our boxpass on HA .com – LOVELY
Cigars – casi nada
Pipes – latest GLP for me is Caravan. WTH was I thinking not exploring this blend back in the day?
