A friend gave this to me last night - a La Unica 100 that had been aging in his humidor for 5 or 6 years.
A beautiful 8.5 x 52 hunk of goodness. It was covered with plume (or bloom as some say). For you non-aficionados out there plume is a fine white powder that forms on cigars whenever they are aged properly - the oils in the cigar react with the humid air. That is a wonderful sign when you find that. Some people think it is mold but they would be mistaken.
While I mostly enjoy heavier cigars this was a very nice, light and airy smoke. Loose bundled with a very nice draw. Would go well with a Sapphire and Tonic or a white wine. At 8.5 inches it was also a longer (time, not physical length) smoke and was very even throughout.
And, yes, it is displayed on my OFFICIAL Jack Bauer "Jack Sack" in which I carry various and sundry implements of destruction.
It is good to be The Rhino with buddies that appreciate the finer things in life, know how to care for their cigars and, even better, share the wealth.
