“The challenge was to create a complex large ring gage cigar using all rich tobaccos and maintain a good burn. It’s a large ring gage for the refined palette.”
~ George Rodriguez
Today I will go into the newest blend from boutique cigar brand owner George Rodriguez. The G6 is a 6×60 monster of a cigar. To be totally up front I am not usually interested into the 6×60 cigars but I know George and he makes a great product so I decided to give it a go. The wrapper on this cigar is very attractive with its milk chocolate color and oily sheen. It has a minimal amount of veins and smells of a sweet barnyard with a hint of spice. The draw after I remove the cap is free even though the cigar is very generously packed with tobacco.
The first few puffs off this monster I am detecting notes of a coffee with hints of cocoa in the background. The draw still is free flowing with lots and lots of smoke is emanating from both the head and foot of the cigar. The burn is a little wavy but manageable (I can’t really blame the burn of the cigar on the cigar because the humidity the past 2 weeks has been ridiculous.)
The ash is hanging on strong but that is kind of expected with how much tobacco is used in these big cigars. The strong ash is knocked loose and I continue my journey where I am still picking up the notes of cocoa along with some notes of nuts. The flavors are nice and smooth and not at all subdued as u find in the bigger ring gage smokes.
Here at the end of our journey the spice factor picked up quite a bit. The flavors were still there and were still delicious. The burn stayed even throughout and had no major construction issues.
The G6 in my opinion is right up there with the other recent releases of large ring gage cigars. . The flavors were all there without being watered down in the large ring gage. The construction was perfect in everyone that I smoked. For those interested this particular blend also comes in a G4 6.25×54 and a G5 5×56 (they come in boxes of 10.) George doesn’t have them in many stores but you can visit his website of hit him up on his twitter page and he will gladly ship them to you.
AND THE WINNER IS:
DM me your address and the cigars will be on the way
