Flavor Wheels

Post by 815DC » Tue Mar 30, 2021 6:05 pm

Ok am I seriously the last person to learn about these flavor wheels to help learn how to pick flavors out of cigars? I guess u start towards the center and work your way out.

To be honest I probably heard about them and promptly forgot... which isn’t out of the realm of possibility of happening again...


Hooray ADD! :lol:

Very cool but at $250 delivered, the trial and error of looking at the flavor wheels while smoking is sounding more palatable.

Pretty much my conclusion as well J.
The convenience i bet is nice for one who is serious about picking up more than the odd simple flavor note. I don't know how the scents keep potent without cross contamination though on something like that.

This idea is taken from the exact same thing they market to folks wanting to be a "nose" in the Scotch whisky world.

As an aside, if any of you are considering this realize those bottles are a lot smaller than you can probably judge from the picture. They're only 4ml apiece, which is less than 1/7 of an ounce (x24 for the kit). That essence in the bottle may disappoint at the $8600 per gallon rate for the whole setup
