Decent smoke to try

I have held on to this cigar for a while. It has probably been resting in my humidor for well over a year so now felt like a good time to get it out an break it down. I must say that I really enjoyed the initial flavor rush and I thought it would set the pace for what could have been an amazing cigar but as quickly as it all the goodness rushed into my mouth hole, is as quickly as it dissipated. Where did all that flavor go? It's a mystery that may never be solved. The cigar is fairly static, offering up few change ups and when it did, it only revealed muted flavors. Maybe it's like being a cocaine addict. I got that initial rush and started chasing that feel good moment to the very end. Either way I decided this cigar just isn't for me. It wasn't bad per say, but certainly forgettable.
