If you would prefer to watch the video prior to seeing my results then watch now before you read on any further. If you are sick of my ugly mug, then you can just continue on with your reading.


Sample #7:
Body (1-5): 2
Fullness of Flavor (1-5): 1
Balance (1-5): 3

Overall impressions: Not much to this one. Smoke was very airy providing only a slight tobacco flavor and not much else. Very light on the palate. Nothing bitter or bad tasting, just nothing there.

Sample #8:
Body (1-5): 4
Fullness of Flavor (1-5): 4
Balance (1-5): 4

Overall impressions: Started off great. Began in the upper medium range and progressed from there. The base flavors were very good with a nice woodiness as the base flavor with a very complimentary earthiness and a developing spice. A very enjoyable coffee component was there in the beginning which was a very nice surprise. All in all a very enjoyable smoke.

Sample #9:
Body (1-5): 4.5
Fullness of Flavor (1-5): 4
Balance (1-5): 4

Overall impressions: Great smoke. Full bodied from the beginning with a ton of nice flavors. This is a spice bomb. The spice hits you in the nose right from the first puff. The base flavor is a nice distinct cedar woodiness with the pepper spice dancing around it along with a tinge of earth and a sweet floral component. This is my kind of smoke.
