This was a find from Underground Cellar that I really enjoyed. The
flavors were standard out of a good solid Cote De Provence, chalk, mineral, and this was an excellent summer sipping wine.
Notes on the nose include grapefruit, terroir, and a touch of sweetness.
The gold straw color isn’t so prolific thanks to my shitty photo taking abilities, but this was definitely an enjoyable wine. Medium finish.
For great deals on wine (we both get $25 in wine I think) Underground Cellar.
The Montecristo White was a cigar I picked up from a grab bag of
random things from the folks at Casa De Montecristo by Tampa
Humidor. It came along with the Partagas Black, and Alec Bradley Prensado (5X50).
I was rather surprised. For starters, I’m not a huge Monte fan as a rule, I’ve outgrown the traditional big brands. It’s like drinking Budweiser (if you like pain) and then realizing there is locally brewed IPA. But since I paid for this, figured, what the hell.
The surprise came in that the cigar was fairly flavorful. Honestly, it was creamy, with good solid wood notes and a touch of pepper. The draw was good, construction solid. I’d expect that though from General Cigar. Good flavor overall, with a medium finish, this cigar is one for those who would enjoy a mild cigar but still want plenty of flavor.
They opened up and doubled the space with the dopeness! More TVs, more seating, more ventilation, more cigars, more whiskies…
