I’ll be honest here: I have not smoked a lot of Davidoffs in my life. And that is probably to my detriment because I have heard a lot of good things about them. For example, one guy I know said that he used to exclusively smoke one of the Davidoff brands almost exclusively because there […]
I received this cigar from La Palina; as always, all reviews are my own. Over the last month or so I have watched the whole White Collar series, which is mainly about this FBI agent and conman extraordinaire who bust white collar criminals. If you don’t think about it too much it’s a fun show […]
The band features a… oh, that’s what a Merlion is. This is a line extension to the La Sirena (which I loved, giving it 95 points and the #2 spot on my 2011 Top 10 list) stables and is made by La Aurora. I love La Aurora cigars and I toured their factory a couple […]
Pigtails. Who does not love pigtails? But, if you do, this cigar might not be the one for you because it does have a pigtail on the cap. Alright, other than the pigtail there is a good amount of oils. The construction looks fine but I have to say that it is visibly lopsided. That is a little bit disconcerting but, as long as the cigar smokes fine, I’m OK with it.

Oats, wheat and charred wood. There is also a nutty flavor going on here. Medium-full bodied and burns evenly. I like these flavors and they work well together.
I’m halfway through now and the flavors are still very, very good. Loving everything about this cigar. Good flavors, good draw and a decent burn. It’s definitely better than the last one of these I smoked (Which I gave 88 points to).
It does not end very well though. There is an ashiness to it as it gets close to the nub. However, I don’t think that this needs to overshadow what is good about this cigar and there is a lot that is good about it. Still, these bad flavors do last for a half an inch or so and that does hurt my score for this cigar a little bit.
Hmmm. The bad notes leave as soon as they came. That’s good. What is also a good thing is that those enjoyable flavors come back.
