Quick Cigar Review: Dominican Big Leaguer | 1st GenerationFirst Third

The draw from the beginning is very good. There are nodes of creaminess and cedar along with just a hint of cloves.

Second Third

Now on the 2nd third. The draw is fine and the burn line has not required any touching up at all. The ashes are solid light grey with darker striations. The profile has picked up and I am noting a bit of pepper, creaminess with a hint of cashew nut. The little bit of clove is hanging on in the background. This cigar is very well constructed.

Final Third

The complexity of this cigar is very good. The flavor profile has transcended throughout the event. At this point it is a very savory cigar. Each of the nodes that have been present are still giving way to each other making it a very sublime cigar. The pepper, nuttiness, bit of clove, and cedar all are giving way to one another. The draw is great as is and the burn continued without touching up throughout the entire cigar.

Quick Cigar Review: Dominican Big Leaguer | 1st GenerationOverall

Keystoned at $7.80 this is a great selection to have in your humidor. I was able to smoke it completely to the nub. The ashes remained solid throughout. The draw was great. I never had to touch it up even resting it several minutes it did not require relighting. Just an awesome smoke.

 

Total Score - Great
