Blind Cigar Review: Dunbarton T&T | Todos Las Dias Double Wide BelicosoInitial Impressions

Appearance: 93

“What a solid little stick this is! I’m not a big Nub fan and this cigar is a bit reminiscent of that style vitola but with a little extra length and a torpedo cap I sort of dig this thick little guy! The wrapper is suede brown and has a fairly smooth feel with some veins and wrapper edges showing but in a handsome way. If it was any shorter I wouldn’t like the feel in my hand but this is good looking and i’m ready to get smoking!” – (ArmyRN)

Aroma: 91

“Smokey peat, sweet muskiness, and silky chocolate tantalize the nose while flavors of sweet leather coat the mouth on a the cold draw.” – (Bostoneo)

First Third

Flavor: 90
Strength: Medium-Strong
Body/Complexity: Medium

“A fairly good amount of pepper greets me when I take the first draws on this cigar. It’s not unpleasant but I had a moment of worrying that pepper was all I was going to get. However, just a quarter of an inch in there are notes of coffee, cocoa and leather peeking through and the pepper has settled right down. It is more prominent on the retro but there is a spiciness mixed in that is both powerful and tasty at the same time. As i near the first third a nice sweetness is starting to come through. It reminds me of a dark chocolate brownie!” – (ArmyRN)

“Not nearly as bold a flavor profile is presented as was expected. There are some wood notes and maybe a little bit of leather in the background, but both flavors are pretty faint.” – (mdwest)

Second Third

Flavor: 89
Strength: Medium-Strong
Body/Complexity: Medium-Full

“Rich malt syrup flavors continues with a slight cedar background note. Additional flavors occur with the addition of smokey sweet peppers and cumin, damn this is delicious.” – (Bostoneo)

“Flavors start to ramp up a little bit in the second third and are a little easier to make out than they were in the first few inches. Wood notes are certainly more defined.” – (mdwest)

Final Third

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

“Spice has shown up and making the cigar more of medium in strength. On the retro I get that sweet coffee, but there is some cream and spice now that tickles the nasal passage. I take it back, spice has really picked up now. My lips are tingling.” – (irratebass)

“So just as I thought the sweetness was gone it re-emerged. Sweet cocoa is now mixed with the leather and iron for an interesting mix of flavors. The sweetness doesn’t stay consistent long but it was enough to wake my taste buds back up after enjoying the meaty and earthy leather of the second third. It is popping in and out of the draws going into the end. ” – (ArmyRN)

Overall Impressions

Draw: 89

“A very good draw is provided with good resistance that is consistent from beginning to end. ” – (mdwest)

Burn: 90

“This was a little hot for me coming down the home stretch, so I put the cigar down a lot in between puffs to let it cool. The ash held really well and had to be tapped. It’s a nice mix of white and dark gray with an almost black center. It felt pretty sturdy and compact as the rest of this cigar felt from the start. The burn was fairly even and the wrapper didn’t crack or lift. The cap held well especially for a torpedo cap with a deep V cut. The burn ends of the wrapper were dark and toasty in appearance. ” – (ArmyRN)

Construction: 89

“Very good construction, despite it’s size it performed beautifully, however at the final third it became quite mushy, and had to put it down with about an inch to go. ” – (irratebass)

Overall Strength: Medium-Strong
Overall Body/Complexity: Medium-Full
Experience Overall: 91

“I was glad to be able to review this cigar and would smoke many many more. Great job to the manufacture” – ()

“Overall this was a fantastic smoke that I would certainly smoke time and time again. The flavors that came through were well balanced and thoroughly enjoyable throughout the entire experience. Bravo on this one.” – (Bostoneo)

“This is the type of cigar that you need to take your time with. Say you’ve had a bad or long day at work, and you need something to chill out, this is the cigar for that. It starts out really mild with lots of sweet coffee and wood flavors. It continues to stay that way until the final third when you least expect it, and that’s where the spice comes in and really wakes you up with strength. This will be a good cigar to pair with coffee or your favorite cocktail.” – (irratebass)

“I liked the overall mix of flavors although I really could have used more sweetness hanging around in the second and last thirds. This is a predominantly leather an mineral taste cigar with the beginning offering a nice splash of pepper and spice and the cocoa and chocolate notes bouncing in and out. I think the vitola is perfect and if it was any longer I would have had enough. Tasty and interesting to say the least.” – (ArmyRN)

“Overall not a bad cigar, but for me at least it lacked any “wow” factor that would make me want to make it part of my regular rotation. ” – (mdwest)
