Default Melanio #4

Less a full review and more of a first impression. I'm loving it. This cigar is full-bodied and smooth. It possess that rare strength that tickles the palate and stings the sinuses, but doesn't bomb your mouth. I can taste the bourbon-like sweetness of the aged tobacco along with hints of coffee and nuts.

Jay... you used the word "palate" twice in one sentence?

Yeah, saw that when I reread it *sigh*. That's what happens you stop typing to finish a conversation and repeat your thoughts.

I did also try the robusto though. Not going to post on it because it was my third cigar of the night, but I won a few more at poker so I'll post my impressions later this weekend.

Digging the cigar. Another win for Oliva.

CFO, the ultimate Oliva/ST whoreshop had that single box of #4s left. They had a box of Robustos in their single stick cabinet which I bought the last stick from. Then we used up the last few sticks of Churchills in a poker game which I won a few out of.

I heard it will be at least a month before we see more.

I got a couple of the #4s at IPCPR and really enjoyed them. My shop has other sizes and I tried the torpedo there. I prefer that size. It has a little more flavor to me and smokes excellent.

Joe, before you wrap it, find out how. One year my mom wrapped a tree with an old shower curtain and it made mold that killed the tree.
I've planted and grown 5 fig trees over the years at various houses. The key is finding a good place to plant it. It you plant it sheltered from the north wind there is less need for fanatical wrapping. In fact with proper shelter you can skip a few years and still have the tree survive.
Other than wrapping and planting... the fig tree requires little care. You do not feed it (doing so will make it produce tons of leaves and little fruit). Few if any pests attack the tree (just the fruit is a favorite of ants, bees and birds (& the occasional squirrel).
And the reward is the tremendous fruit. Yum...
What kind of trees do you have Joe?

I find tar paper to be the best. Traditional wrapping instructions include wrapping it in burlap then build a frame of wood around it, then tack on tar paper, then fill the void with leaves raked form your yard. I did that the first few years at my first house. It's a chore for sure.
The last 10 years I tie the tree tight with thick heavy rope (the thicker the better, it will not cut into the delicate bark). The purpose here is to make it manageable. Then I wrap it in burlap. Around this I have a weathered and tatters tarp. Most of today's tarps are breathable. Mine more so because it's tattered. On top I put a 5 gal bucket then weigh it down by tying a light line form the bucket sides to a cinder block on each side. In all my years doing this, I lost 1 branch one particularly cold winter.
But be aware it may be warmer where I am. I have the ocean a very short distance away and most of the winter it's above freezing.

I go in my shed, whatever is in there I wrapped it up with. Last year I used bubble wrap and plastic garbage bags. No problem.

This guy (Bill Muzychko) lives in NJ and knows his stuff.

you wrap it with plastic against the branches and never had any issues with mold?

I wont take that chance. Like I said, a shower curtain killed my moms tree. I like the burlap layer. It's easy enough and provides a small space and I dont have to worry about losing my tree that I've been nurturing for 10 years. Bubble wrap sounds good, between the burlap and the tarp. It would provide a good air-space and a good insulation.
Then again more winters like we had last year and you wont need to wrap it at all.
