Drunk Chicken Cigars Fat Hen in Review

“Have you Kaplowitz’d to-day?”

Drunk Chicken
Fat Hen

BINDER: Ecuadorian
FILLER: Dominican, Ecuadorian

FORMAT: Shorty Torpedo (460)
STRENGTH: Med./Med, Full


A bracing mahogany wood within a maple syrup sweetness. Black & red peppers, mainly thru the nose, fall in a molasses sweetness to the palate. A tick of cumin, dash of smoked paprika. Undertones are a good bit less structured than primaries. Predominantly leathery earth, a bit dryly. Perhaps somewhat hollow...

... A sweet trickling-down into that earthiness. A manure melange. A can of cola. An in/out up/down fruity chocolate. A bit of a berry tart sourness comes into the second-half. None of it fully entrenches. The lengthy finish is structured as fine as the overtones and leaves a sweetly spiced woodsy bit which ends quite clean. Complex but up-top only; nuanced but underneath only where it lacks in delineations.

Smokes somewhat fast even for 4", maybe a tick understufft, but no hard/soft spots. Open draw. Very smoky but sans a room-note beyond an almost sharp 'baccy. The construction holds but does soften-some. Bun-line is dead even gate-to-wire. Let's just call it a cruise-control performance. Let's just call it an interesting stick that definitely didn't lay an egg. Unique paths find new obstacles, but going off-road is still fun.
