Herf 57 – La Casa del Chris

October 7th, 2012 Everett, WA

This herf was held (for the first time) at Chris’s new house.  We were very happy for him to finally get to host, along with his brother Dan.

Herf #57, Location: Everett, WA is underway!

In attendance are: Fernand, Robert, Joe, Chris, Dan, Jim, and Patrick in AZ @PHXCigarGuy.

Chris served up some amazing Italian Beef. Dan assisted with assorted Italian sliced meats & cheeses. Joe added meatballs for good measure. ^Fernand

We're following our usual 4-part rating system (Appearance & Construction, Flavor, Smoking Characteristics, and Overall Impression).

After an opening surge of peppers, this torpedo has quickly mellowed. ^Fernand

@phxcigarguy. Yeah, it does add to a good experience when there's no flakes or unexpected ash dropping off. ^Robert

Jim is seeing the pepper come back, while Joe is getting more sweetness, like cinnamon. ^Fernand

The smoke output of mine is nothing short of impressive!  ^Fernand

Category I.
Appearance & Construction: 14 pts (93% of the points possible)

Category II.
Flavor: 23 pts (92% of the points possible)

Category III.
Smoking Characteristics: 23 pts (92% of the points possible)

Category IV.
Overall Impression: 30 pts (86% of the points possible)

After throwing out the highest and lowest (Joe’s ‘82’ and Dan’s ‘94’) then averaging the remaining scores, The Cohiba Club's official rating for the La Reloba Sumatra Torpedo is 87.

This was a very enjoyable cigar but no particular flavor ever seemed to come out for me. ^Robert

We’ll see you at the next herf, November 4th. ^Fernand
