We’ve been having an unseasonably warm October here in Vancouver so I took full advantage on Saturday and fired up a RyJ Exhibicion No.4. I believe this was from a Cuban sampler I purchased some time ago. The box code from this smoke is POU JUN 12.
To be honest, it’s not the prettiest smoke. The wrapper is bumpy and veiny. There is a soft spot near the middle also. Fortunately, it smells fantastic pre-light with tons of sweetness on the nose.
I punch it and fire it up. My first impressions are good. It’s very creamy and sweet tasting. There is a nice rich, full body to this cigar. It is much richer than other RyJ’s I’ve smoked.
In the early goings, I can taste black tea and leather. The black tea notes are unusual, but very enjoyable. There is not much spice present in this cigar.
The draw on this cigar is perfect. The body is medium-full and there is not much strength present. There are no touch-ups or relights required.
The black tea and leather flavour profile remains consistent. At the half way mark, there is a little spice lingering on the finish. Despite the lack of complexity on this cigar, it is very enjoyable. The flavour profile is unique and it remains very rich.
Smoking time on this was 1h10min. Highly recommended!
A very rich cigar with a unique profile. Awesome!
