Jaime Garcia Reserva Especial Limited Edition

Posted in Cigar Reviews on May 7, 2012 by Griff

Wrapper: Nicaragua

Binder: Nicaragua

Filler: Nicaragua

Size: Toro (6 ½ x 52)

Pre Light

The dark chocolate wrapper on the LE is seamless with I rich oil finish to it.  The double bands are very nice looking with a blue and cream color.  The aroma off the unlit stick is very sweet and after cutting off the triple cap I am picking up the same sweetness along with a little hint of earth. The draw is perfect and the cigar feels nicely packed from head to foot.

1st Third

As I thought before lighting this cigar up I was going to get some pepper not only because it is a Nicaraguan puro but also cause it’s a Pepin stick. After the pepper dies down I am picking up some deep cocoa sweetness along with the earthy flavors I got off the cold draw. Burn has been great so far.

2nd Third

The ash is holding on for quite a while and needed to be tapped off on the side of the ashtray. The burn line has been sharp and has stayed cool throughout. The sweetness and earthiness are still there and I am now getting hints of coffee on the aftertaste.

Final Third

The flavor profile has stayed the same and has blended together quite well. No complaints on the construction I didn’t need a single touch up or relight throughout the entire smoking experience.

Overall

I really enjoyed the limited edition version of this cigar as I do the original line when I light them up. Flavors and construction were on point and I will definitely grabbing a few more of these on my next trip to the B&M. Next week I’ll be smoking the Connecticut version of the LE so we will see if there are any changes in the experience.

Keep em burnin’
