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: Chateau Ka Source De Rouge 2018
Type: Red Wine
Grapes: Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot
Region: Bekaa Valley
Date Consumed: 6 November, 2022
A good blend. Ruby red. Standard Lebanese wine. Hard not to like. But nothing memorable about it. It was the third bottle we opened on Sunday during family lunch. I’d give it a 79/100.
