Default MTS February: GLPease Key Largo

Monthly Tobacco Shakedown for February is Key Largo. I figured this would be a nice blend to start this off.

Deep, Earthy and Creamy. A distinguished broken flake of Red Virginia tobaccos, small leaf orientals, and a measure of Cyprus Latakia, spiced with velvety cigar wrapper leaf. Key Largo develops throughout the bowl, offering a satisfying and sturdy smoking experience, with beautifully balanced, richly textured layers of cocoa, dark roasted coffee, leather, and a lively, lingering finish.

Enjoy

Key Largo is a smooth and satisfying smoke. It does develop quite well and the ingredients are mixed very well. The cigar leaf seems to become more noticeable the more I smoke it. The cigar and orientals go very well together while the latakia and virginia add a nice balance. The little added flavor from the cigar leaf is a welcome change to most of my smokes and is very nice. This is the first cigar leaf blend I have tried and I like it quite a bit, I don't smoke it every day but it is a very nice change of pace and a welcome addition.

8/10

Like the idea of this. Considering Feb is just about over though, I'll wait until March and try whichever tobacco you choose for that. I like trying a variety of stuff. Looking forward to next months

Just because February will be over soon doesn't matter. If you want you can post a review in this thread a year from now. This concept is just to spark conversation. So go ahead and post a review at your leisure.

I agree with Nick that Key Largo is one of the better cigar leaf blends. Actually the only one that I have enjoyed. It is blended well but could due with some more aging, imho, lol. Creamy and smoky would be how I would describe Key Largo. A quality smoke but one you have to sit and slowly savor to fully benefit.
