Rough Rider Sweets Churchill
I really used to prefer a dark wrapper but this stick has my attention. The draw was smooth and the burn was even. The sweet tip makes the experience even more enjoyable.
Obviously the first thing I noticed with the cigar is the sweet cap. I didn t find the taste to be artificial.Being fairly new to Cigar smoking but having frequented the local cigar shop many times, I was searching for a stick I preferred enough to buy a box.I prefer a somewhat mild to medium mild cigar that doesn t stay with me for hours.In my youth I smoked Swisher Sweets. I was immediately brought back to that time with this cigar.At 60 my sweet tooth has subsided quite a bit, so had this stick continued with the initial sweetness I probably would not have liked it.That s where the but comes in. Roughly halfway down the sweetness subsided considerably. I must admit that I keep a fairly wet tip which is probably why.Aside from the sweetness, the draw is nice, as is the construction. Producing a long firm ash up to around 2 was no problem. I found the burn slow and even. As for pairings, I really enjoy this with my morning coffee, microbrew beer, and even a dirty Bombay Sapphire martini. I m sure it would pair well with others, but these are my main drinks. Surprisingly it did not fit well with a hard cider.In closing I would like to say I was surprised to find two somewhat negative reviews about this stick.My local cigar shop tells me they are flying off the shelf, and this is a very large well-stocked store with many choices.
