E Doble by Erik Espinosa Cigar Review

July 27, 2012 · Posted in Cigar Review 

Full Disclosure: I received a couple of these from Smoke Inn.

The first thing you should know about this cigar is that it is cheap. Just look at the Cigar Stats for this thing. Yeah, that’s really cheap. So it’s one of those cigars that if it tastes alright and you want to stock up on cigars for when you’re walking the dogs or doing yard work then this might be a good choice.

It’s not a beautiful looking cigar – scratch that – it’s a pretty gnarly looking cigar. There are stretch marks around a couple of the veins and the cigar itself is hard to the touch. The shape itself is pretty good and the wrapper is medium to dark brown.

Freezing Hot Water Flame!

Not bad. I wouldn’t say that the flavors are awesome but they are enjoyable. A little bit of spice and oak and grass. The mixture is nice and as long as this cigar doesn’t break bad then it’ll be a good cigar.

Dark chocolate, raspberry and cappuccino come through during the second third. It’s really quite exceptional for a cigar this cheap. The flavors aren’t amazing but they are very good.

Entering the last third and the flavors move towards the berry flavor more. The other major flavor is still chocolate.

This cigar did have some problems. Unfortunately, the draw was a bit tight but there was still enough airflow to not hurt the flavors too much. The burn was good and this is a medium bodied cigar. While the flavors weren’t great they are very good for the price point. It’s definitely worth a try if you are looking to fill up on cigars you smoke while doing a moderately physical activity.

    I tried these once when the first came out, they must have done a bit better with age, I gotta try it again.

    @Peter: It’s a good cigar now. They’re pretty cheap too so retrying it won’t hurt the wallet too much.
