Cuban Link from the September Privada Cigar Club Package

Today I bring you the second cigar from the Privada Cigar Club September Package. This one promises to be a hit as described in the club bulletin. So without further ado here are my thoughts on it.

Cigar Make up:

Robusto 5X50

Connecticut leaf wrapper

Possibly Cuban binder / filler which is most likely not the case but other than that the contents are unknown.

Constucted in Costa Rica.

1st 3rd of this cigar starts out in the way that most Cubans start. That being a pepper zing joined in with cedar and some type of floral.

2nd 3rd opens wide up with peanut butter goodness joined in with a Milky Way type chocolate and finishing with pepper on the retro-hale.

Final 3rd finished out with the Milky Way flavor, peanut butter, pepper and coffee bean.

Burnline

Verdict:

Smoking Apparatus:

Until Next Time

PD CIGARS Lancero

Size: 4 X 6 1/2 I believe

Wrapper: Dominican

Binder: Dominican

Filler: Dominican

Price point: At the time around $ 6.00

Today I chose to revisit an old cigar which I obtained from PD Cigars in 2008 or around there. It has been house in my cigar humidor since that time. So I after looking though my humidor I decided to revisit it to see if the smoking experience changed in any way. So without further ado here’s my take on it.

1st third started off mellow with a rich tobacco taste accompanied with a nice hit of pepper.

In the 2nd third the power began with strong hints of pepper, coffee, and PD’s trade mark of peanut butter goodness.

The final 3rd changed rapidly almost mind boggling. I say this because the cigar became stronger for a brief moment due to it’s strong pepper blast which quickly disappeared just liken that. The cigar quickly then transitioned into a minty flowery type experience with little hints of nuts and chocolate. These flavor pretty much continued to the end and I have to say I’m glad I revisited it.

Smoking apparatus:

Conclusion: Not sure if they offer this cigar anymore but the company still exists located in Georegia. They can be found at https://www.google.com/search?q=pd+cigars&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&hl=en-us&client=safari#

Verdict: I would definitely smoke this again and pair it up with coffee as I did.

JFR COROJO SUPER TORO

Cigar Makeup

Toro6 1/2 X 52

Wrapper: Corojo

Binder / Filler: Nicaraguan 

Price: $9.50

First third of this cigar consisted of some black pepper, some floral, and hints of coffee.

The 2nd third consisted of spice, leather, wood and pepper which intensified. So far the smoking experience is a full bodied profile and this cigar is not for the average cigar smoking Joe.

The final third pretty much ended up with the flavors in the second third with little to no changes. Over all a pretty good smoke. I probably will not be revisiting this smoke due to other cigars I will be visiting in the future. Is it worth the $9.50? Yes and No. But I’ll leave that to you to make. As always just one mans opinion so try it for yourself.
