Aging Room

Aging Room M20

I got this cigar at a cigar event at De Oude Tijd in Utrecht, The Netherlands. Aging Room is available on the Dutch market but the m20 ain’t, so was very pleased to get it.

I love the box pressed perfecto shape, the little pigtail and the dark wrapper. The cigar doesn’t have much veins. There is a slight manure smell to the cigar. The predraw is fine, I taste some pepper.

The cigar is easily lit and even though perfectos can have a shitty draw at the start this cigar starts out fine with a lot of pepper and some toast. Soon I taste a bitter tar flavor with citrus, I check for built up tar but none of that. After a centimeter it changes to herbal flavors with pepper. The pepper in the aftertaste has a burning sensation.

After 3 centimeter the cigar turns sweet with heaps of red pepper, you can’t say this cigar is subtle. Slowly but surely I also get wood flavors. The sweetness is overpowering the wood and the background and aftertaste is very peppery. Halfway I taste a strong lemon flavor with that wood and the abundance of pepper.

The draw is very good, straight from the start. The smoke isn’t think and isn’t plentiful although it improves. The burn is decent, not straight but not crooked. The silver gray ash is frayed and not firm. Full flavored, medium to full bodied. The cigar lasted me 90 minutes.

Would I buy this cigar again? No, too peppery, not subtle.
