Happy Monday, folks!
Also, please let me offer my apologies for not getting one of these discussion contests up last week.
One of the things that’s struck me as interesting lately is how very different our preferences are when it comes to cigar tasting notes. Which brings me to this week’s discussion contest:
What’s your favorite tasting note? Least favorite?

If you were to poll people about ice cream, I’d imagine that there are only a few who would say there’s a flavor that they absolutely, violently abhor. But for the most part, I think most people would say they prefer x/y/z, but wouldn’t avoid chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, cookies ‘n cream, rocky road, or chocolate mint if it was the last ice cream on earth.
Yet when it comes to cigars, it seems that there are clear winners and losers even in the major league flavors such as earth, chocolate, umami, wood, leather, and pepper.
For instance: your least favorite flavor, if it was abundant in the only cigar available to you, would you still smoke it?
From my discussions lately with various groups, it seems that everyone has a favorite as well as a tasting note that they avoid at all costs in the cigar world.
For me, I can’t get enough of a cigar with cinnamon impressions. Simultaneously, any hint of mushrooms quickly adds a cigar to the bottom of personal preferences list. As much as I love tasting cinnamon, I detest tasting mushroom or broth (umami) sensations.
What about you!? What are your favorite and least favorite tasting notes?
