I have a little bit of history with this brand as I named the 2012 Chisel as my top cigar of 2012 and, frankly, that’s the best cigar I have ever smoked. It’s so good that if I had to only smoke one cigar for the rest of my life I would quickly choose that […]
This is the cigar I smoked Christmas night. Expecting a lot from this cigar I needlessly got my hopes up and, as you will see, they were dashed. In fact, it forced me to create a brand new rating category called unsmokable. Here’s my review:
I am smoking this cigar with Single Barrel Wild Turkey, which is quite smooth, and water. The construction of this cigar looks extremely difficult with a nipple on the foot, which is called a perfecto tip (a tapered end at the foot). It also has a lot of oil and it’s just a visually impressive cigar. Can’t wait!
Ring Gauge: 47
Binder: Dominican Republic
Filler: Dominican Republic
The draw is very tight at first. I hope it’s just because of the unique shape of this cigar. It is beginning to open up a little bit as the burn gets past the shoulder of the nipple. It’s sweet with some spice. Medium-full bodied.
Draw is just getting worse and the burn isn’t much better. This cigar is a pain. If it weren’t for the draw this would be a very good cigar. Unfortunately, the draw kills it.
Leather, spice, sweetness, but it just doesn’t draw. That means I can’t get much of those flavors from the cigar. It’s a damn shame because I was really looking forward to smoking this cigar. Oh well, tomorrow is another day.
