"I enjoyed this cigar and look forward to seeing what it is so I can smoke it again. Though the opening black coffee flavor was almost too bitter for me, it transitioned into a smooth and spicy blend. By the final puffs that were very much reminiscent of Mexican chocolate, I hated having to finally put it down. " -Lauren S. (Lauren S.)
"I would love to smoke this cigar again with an improved draw. The flavor notes were very nice but I dare say I missed out on the full experience due to the tightness. There could’ve been a little more oomph to the notes but it still was a pretty cigar to look at and a decent smoking experience." -Diana (ArmyRN)
"I am definitely a fan of this cigar. The flavors are wonderful, the construction was superb, and overall it was just damn good! It's cigars like this that remind me why I smoke them in the first place. This might have been just a little full bodied for some, but for me it was just right. I'm especially thankful that I chose to pair this with a stout beer...just wonderful!" -Jason H. (Jokey Smurf)
"For a Connecticut shade cigar, this was fairly enjoyable. There weren't any flavor transitions to speak of but the salted nuts and butter worked well together. Very mild in strength but it would make a good morning cigar or a cigar to start your day with. Coffee might overpower the flavors in this but I can see it being enjoyed with a milder coffee or chai tea. It didn't wow me but my palate tends to enjoy the darker stronger cigars." -Kevin J.

Dapper Cigar Co has announced a third release for IPCPR later this week, the El Borracho Maduro (Broadleaf). The original El Borracho Maduro used a San Andrés whereas this one will use a Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper. The original blend was used as a starting point but was amped up in strength by adding more Nicaraguan Ligero from Oliva Tobacco's prized La Joya farm. This new line is scheduled to be available November.
"This was an absolutely enjoyable cigar! The flavors were good and varied and the performance was excellent. My finest wish is that a couple of boxes of this cigar end up having one of the top shelves of my humidor... Absolutely worthy of a spot in anyone's rotation " -Jason H. (Jokey Smurf)
