Cigar Geeks Geek Critique

Johnny-O World Famous custom rolled Behique52

Cigar Geeks Rating

Welcome to another Member sponsored Geek Critique.  This one has been generously sponsored by our member shakinghorizons (Colin).  The format of this particular critique was a blind review.  Members received the cigar without any knowledge of what it was with the only clue being "This cigar was released in 2010 and has been immensely popular since."  They were then asked to smoke it and submit their guess of what it was.  There were a lot of good guesses but no one actually got it correct.  

The cigar provided for this round is quite an enigma.  There is very little information available for it and others in the line.  It is only sold directly by Johnny himself through forums sites.  Ladies and Gentlemen, the cigar you reviewed was none other than the Johnny-O World Famous custom rolled Behique52.  From what I have gleaned from the few sources out there, the "World Famous" designation is used to indicate the cigar was rolled by a specific/different roller than his other cigars.  Thanks very much Colin for providing the sticks!

This cigar was enjoyed with apothic red crush

Pre-Light: 18 Points of 20 Possible

Good looking milk chocolate colored wrapper. Firm even pack, silky oily feel with a few veins. Seams are tight and invisible. Has a big double cap with a neat pigtail. Looks like a 5 x 50 or maybe a 52. Has a mellow hay and musty earth aroma.

Light & Burn: 10 Points of 15 Possible

Cut easy and lit up nice with plumes of smoke. About an inch in burn line went a bit wonky and needed a touch up. This unfortunately didn't get much better. Needed 5 touch ups in total. This of course affected the performance and the stick needed double puffs here and there to get continued smoke output. Ash was a dark gray color and held on for about an inch at a time. The smoke was on the thick side and Id say the body was a medium. Strength a medium

Construction: 25 Points of 30 Possible

Construction was good, no cracks or knots to work through. The draw would have been perfect had it not been for the burnline. One side would literally go out affecting the draw directly. This I think affected the flavors a bit and muted them somewhat

Flavor: 30 Points of 35 Possible

Flavor profile on this stick was good. Pretty much a straight shooter as I did not detect much transitioning, however the flavors that were there were pleasant. First light starts off with a pepper blast that lasts about 1/2 inch then mellows to a much mellower soft pepper. The predominant Flavor was a woodsy earth. The smoke was sorta thick and left a nice oily slick on the tongue and roof of my mouth. The finish was long and brought in a cedar. There were times I thought I tasted a bourbon or something similar. No desert like flavors but I was fine with that. I liked the consistent flavors that this cigar had.

Summary

OK so first Ill say that this is a blind review and im clueless to what it is, I cannot even find a 5 inch robusto with a pigtail to match it to. So I just picked the first cigar in the database knowing any guess I made would have to be changed anyway. Out side of the burn issues this was a good cigar, Id love to try another when I find out what it was because the burnline affected the draw and the draw muted the flavors I feel. So yes Id smoke it again.
EDIT after a lot of thought and found a cigar that I think it is..
