FAMILY X LOYALTY FENRIR | CIGAR REVIEW
APRIL 9, 2023 - PHIL KURUT, COMEDY - CIGARS - MUSIC
FAMILY X LOYALTY FENRIR GRAN TORO (6 x 54)
BINDER: INDONESIAN SUMATRA
FILLER: NICARAGUA (CUBANO 98, COROJO 2006)
Sweet earth and spice arrive first from Fenrir. Smooth draw and a generous smoke output. Slight touches of oak and dark chocolate make their way around. Sweet earth flies solo through the retrohale. Coffee and spice mix and form a soft wall around a subtle sweetness.
I woke up today with the Super Mario Bros. music in my head. The music from the old school Nintendo game. I think I’m supposed to be upset about the new movie since Chris Pratt, who is the voice for Mario, doesn’t sound Mario enough. Here’s the thing. It’s a movie about a video game. I struggle to give a crap how the voice actor sounds.
A mild bitterness sets in but eventually allows maple syrup to help smooth out the edges. The burn begins to struggle at the half. I don’t have access to a Bowser fireball, so I’ll use my lighter to get it back on track.
Leather kicks in heavier on the finish and brings a bit of the maple syrup with it, and the burn looks for Bowser fireball again. My cheap lighter has to save the day one more time.
SMOKE TIME: 2 hrs. 4 mins.
RATING: 2.75 / 4 - Where can I get a fireball?
