STILLWELL STAR ENGLISH NO. 27 (6 x 52)
WRAPPER: ECUADORIAN HABANO
BINDER: MEXICAN SAN ANDRÉS
FILLER: NICARAGUA; PIPE TOBACCOS - BURLEY, TURKISH, CYPRIOT LATAKIA
This StillWell Star offering begins with an extremely mild sweet bread and coffee. Dark tea leaves and coffee found on the retrohale. The finish lays down some spice, coffee, and sweetness. Everything is mild.
The draw and smoke output are on par with its StillWell brethren. Excellent.
Eastern spices, cinnamon, tea, and bread pull in. English No. 27 is a master class in mild so far.
Those eastern spices and tea drip from the retrohale, which is noticeably more present than in the draw.
The finish continues with spice, coffee, and sweetness, adding an addition of tea as an opener.
Burn and ash chug right along.
The foot softly floats out wood, spice, coffee, and chocolate. I have to work the sniffer a little bit for some of that, but it’s all there.
Flakes of ash begin to lightly litter my desk.
Bits of curry mingle with cinnamon and sweet bread. Not too sweet though.
Wood and dark coffee dominate the retrohale. The retrohale speaks quite a bit louder than both the draw and finish with the English No. 27.
Coffee performs solo on the finish now. Speaking of solo performers, I’ve yet to decide whether or not I like mimes. They’re kind of like clowns, and I don’t have a severe phobia of clowns like some people do, which I must say I find funny. It’s a weird phobia.
Coulrophobia. See? Weird.
English No. 27 closes out with coffee, earth, prune, and traces of dark chocolate.
Pouring through the nose, earth and dashes of sugar provide a nice smooth exit.
Spice comes back to the finish, joined by coffee. Mild.
Smooth roads and scenic plains. No bumps during this ride. No clowns either.
SMOKE TIME: 2 hrs. 12 mins.
RATING: 3 / 4 - A clown's journey.
