Blind Cigar Review: Dunbarton T&T | Todos Las Dias Half ChurchillInitial Impressions

Appearance: 90

“This cigar was a nice dark rich robusto vitola. Deep veins ran through the wrapper and were coupled with a nice cap and clean foot.” – (ThaGreatWazoo)

Aroma: 91

“Dark but creamy chocolate. This cigar smells like opening a jar of Nutella.” – (dfafjf)

First Third

Flavor: 91
Strength: Medium-Strong
Body/Complexity: Medium

“A nice dark maltiness starts off the show. Fresh leather, Smokey cedar, roasted chili peppers and a slight minor red pepper. The burn is a little wonky but it keeps up, overall a decent third.” – ()

“The first third started with a very heavy and thick smoke. The inhale was full and had lots of hay in it. The beginning started with a harsh finish, but once the cigar settled the flavors were very nice. With the rich hay and grass profile, a slight woodsy note came through and finished the profile very nicely.” – (ThaGreatWazoo)

Second Third

Flavor: 91
Strength: Medium-Strong
Body/Complexity: Medium

“Retrohale is still strong in pepper spice. The cigar has changed slightly in the 2nd 1/3 but no complaints here. Strong full bodied cigar that is still nutty, earthy flavors. I feel like the cocoa flavors have changed into a burnt caramel. Really digging this smaller stick.” – (dfafjf)

“The second third settled quite well and the overall strength was reduced slightly. More notes of hay and wood held true to the profile and the finish on the cigar was very crisp. An absolute delight going into the final third.” – (ThaGreatWazoo)

Final Third

Flavor: 92
Strength: Medium-Strong
Body/Complexity: Medium

“The sweetness is all but gone now, mostly dark wood with earth elements now, and I believe the cigar has transitioned into more spice.” – (irratebass)

“The final third finished where the second third kept me. A nice medium bodied cigar that had a good mixture of hay and wood throughout. The cigar never overheated and was very crisp until the end.” – (ThaGreatWazoo)

Overall Impressions

Draw: 90

“The draw was very nice. A straight cut supplied an ample amount of smoke and a pleasure aroma.” – (ThaGreatWazoo)

Burn: 93

“It did burn exceptionally well” – ()

Construction: 91

“The construction of this cigar was well made. There was a little lumpiness throughout the wrapper, but nothing over the top. A very nice, clean well-built cigar.” – (ThaGreatWazoo)

Overall Strength: Medium-Strong
Overall Body/Complexity: Medium
Experience Overall: 93

“This Cigar started out very tasty, however as it progressed it became less and less complex and eventually a bitter mess at the end.” – ()

“With the exceptional construction and burn, it makes it a nice stick but i think the flavors are quite dark almost too much so.” – ()

“If someone is looking for a full bodied, spicy shorter smoke this is a good one to recommend. I was multitasking while doing this review and not smoking as fast as I usually do but it lasted 55 minutes. Very enjoyable.” – (dfafjf)

“This was a great smoke, plenty of sweetness to start out that transitioned into wood and just a hint of spice to kind of wake you up. This would be good 2nd cigar of the day or would compliment a meal after.” – (irratebass)

“This cigar was great in my opinion. A well-built cigar that was very easy to work with. Simple cut, light, and smoke made this cigar very nice. The flavor profile was delicious. There was not a lot of complexity, but the overall smoke and aroma was absolutely pleasant. If I could make one suggestion, I would say to pre-cut the cigar and let it sit for at least 30 minutes. This will allow an ample amount of rest time and will get the remainder of the harshness out of it, so that it will burn and taste great all the way through. Enjoy these, they are worth the buy.” – (ThaGreatWazoo)
