Name: La Flor Dominicana Capitulo II
Country: Dominican Republic
Size: (6 1/2 inches x 58)
The Capitulo II is a full-bodied cigar that burns slowly and produces a lot of smoke.
I got notes of dried figs, leather, black pepper, and mild hints of oak. I paired it with vodka and sparkling water, but I feel Cognac or brandy would have been a better choice.
Overall, I think the Capitulo II is a cigar made to be smoked casually in cigar lounges. It’s strong, and it’s big enough to keep you company for a very long time.
Name: Caldwell Blind Man’s Bluff Maduro Toro
Size: Toro (6 inches x 52)
An okay cigar. Not too complex. It had a nice draw throughout, but the burn wasn’t flawless. I paired the first half with a 12-year-old Scotch and the second half with oghi.
To be honest, I had higher expectations, and the Blind Man’s Bluff Maduro Toro didn’t meet them.
Name: Domaine de Baal – Le Petit Baal 2019
Type: Red Wine
Grapes: Merlot, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon
Region: Bekaa Valley
Date Consumed: 6 November, 2022
Strong and full-bodied. Bold and powerful. Aged in French oak barrels. Tannic. Raunchy.
This is a wine that has a lot of character. I could smell the red fruits and taste the berries. I could also detect some earthy and leathery notes.
It deserves 86/100.
