Quick Cigar Review: Bespoke | Traditional Robusto

I am certainly happy I have a box of these to share incoming for the holidays! This is a very easy going smoke for those who appreciate a subtle milder medium bodied smoke. I imagine lighting one of these cigars up while rocking in my chair by a warm fireplace, embracing the experience of the mellow and nuanced flavors provided. Construction was top notch however the burn struggled to keep razor sharp. While it wont completely rock your socks off like full bodied sticks, it’s nice to know that this cigar maintains a well balanced profile that anyone can enjoy anytime for a good hour.

Quick Cigar Review: Bespoke | Basilica A

Amazing would be an understatement for this fine luxurious smoke. Ample amounts of complexity and well balanced medium bodied flavors were extracted and deeply appreciated as the blender really knows how to make a grade A smoke.  I cannot sing praises high enough… you MUST… in fact I demand you to buy a Bespoke Basilica A and experience what this cigar has to offer… you will be forever spoiled.

Quick Cigar Review: Atabey | Spiritus

This was a great cigar! I don’t get into the hype of $30, $50 or even $100 cigars, but this Atabey Spiritus was amazing! The draw was a bit snug, but I can’t blame that on the the cigar I don’t think. This was given to my by the BMP’s staff to review. The construction was spot on, but by the end of the second half the head started to come off a bit, again that might have been my user and I just got it too wet. Overall this cigar greeted me with lots and lots of sweetness with hay, and honey. It tipped the scales of medium, but just barely and only briefly. This was an elegant cigar that could be enjoyed at any time of the day, but I think in the morning would be the best or late at night as your last cigar of the day. They are not inexpensive, but if you get the chance I cannot recommend Atabey enough.

Quick Cigar Review: Warped | La Relatos The First

I really enjoyed the La Relatos, there was enough transitions to really hold and make me pay attention to the cigar. The draw was a little tight, and if i wasn’t reviewing it I would have used a draw tool, which I feel would work wonders. Really nice construction, it gave me about an inch and a 1/2 of inch before I felt I had to tap it off. Only one rel-light that I can remember, and the cigar last me almost 2 hours.

Quick Cigar Review: Sindicato | Particulares #1

This was an great cigar. This is one cigar that you can’t judge based on appearance. This cigar ramped up quickly on the strength aspect but was never harsh. This cigar was a recent purchase and did not have much age on it. I am curious what aging would do to these. I enjoyed the flavor profile throughout, while the cigar didn’t drastically change the core flavors would come and go throughout. I will definitely be picking up a fiver.

Quick Cigar Review: Warped | Moon Garden Lancero

I really enjoyed this cigar from start to finish. It’s hard to describe just how well all of the elements of this cigar worked together to provide such an enjoyable experience but every bit of this cigar just worked for me. I am normally not a fan of really strong cigars but this one just did it for me. I picked up a five pack of these just based on the Warped name alone and really wish I had bought the whole box. If you can get your hands on one I would say go for it.

Quick Cigar Review: Joya De Nicaragua | No. 1

Overall, this was an enjoyable cigar. Usually I don’t smoke milder sticks since they have a tendency to go sour halfway through, however this stick held its ground and provided ample amounts of body with enjoyable flavors! Definitely try out the Joya No. 1 before you count it out because of a Connecticut wrapper.

Quick Cigar Review: Cornelius & Anthony | The Gent Corona

This was a very enjoyable cigar. There were plenty of flavors to keep me interested and kept looking at the cigar like mmmm mmm. This cigar would an excellent choice as your first cigar of the day with your favorite cup of joe. The draw was very nice and open, and had a razor sharp burn that needed no touch ups. I smoked the cigar with an inch to go, and would liked to have continue on, but it went out.

Quick Cigar Review: Davidoff | Winston Churchill The Late Hour Churchill

This cigar performed like a champ. No touch ups required during the entire experience and I got tons of flavor. I have smoked this cigar in other sizes and hands down the Churchill is my favorite. I do find the Toro to have a bit more pepper but overall I can smoke these over and over.   Recommend this cigar to anyone.

Quick Cigar Review: Oscar Valladares | Altar Q Sumatra

This was a really nice cigar, and I’m surprised by how well it preformed given that it was on the IPCPR show floor last week, and already in stores. Yes, I purchased this one. The flavors were mostly honey with a nuttiness and a bit of coffee and some spice. As I mentioned before the burn was top notch, and not one touch up was needed. I really enjoyed this cigar, and I think it would make a nice 1st stick of the day, but bear in mind this is a toro, so there is some time commitment, as this cigar last me right around 95 mins.
