Don Tomas Sun Grown Rothschild – Cigar Review

December 19, 2008 · Posted in Cigar Review 

This is a cigar I smoked Tuesday after I turned in my final report for an entrepreneurship class I took this semester. That means I smoked it in my car and without any drinks.

It is a good looking cigar, very short and stubby. Dark as well. Looks like it should be a fairly decent cigar.

Final Light!

This is a very powerful cigar from the very first puff. Actually, it looks menacing just when you look at it. Very full bodied. It’s almost unwieldy though.

Tons of spice with this cigar, extremely peppery. There is also this dry meaty taste with this one. Mostly an even burn although there were some times when I thought it was going to get out of hand.

Unfortunately, this is not a very complex cigar. If you want a bull in the China closet type of cigar then this is the one for you. But if you are looking for something more refined then you should go elsewhere.

    Honestly, it’s been a while since I smoked one of these last. If memory serves, however, it does have a bit of a nicotine kick. I doubt I’d nub it if I smoked another one but, who knows?, you might find you like it. If you do go ahead and try one let me know how it goes.
