1502 Ruby

Posted in Cigar Reviews on November 19, 2012 by Griff

Wrapper: Ecuadorian Sumatra

Binder: Nicaragua

Filler: Nicaragua

Size: Toro 6×50 (Box Pressed)

Pre Light

The 1502 Ruby has the right name with its brown wrapper having a reddish tint to it along with its ruby and gold band.  The wrapper has a nice oil sheen on it and there is no large veins.  The wrapper smells of manure and pepper.  After snipping off the cap it opens a nice draw with flavors off cocoa and nuts.

1st Third

It opens up with a slight pepper and then opens up with the cocoa I was picking up on the cold draw.  The burn is sharp and cool with tons and tons of heavy creamy smoke coming off the draw that just sits right in front of your face.

2nd Third

The second third introduced and cedar flavor to go along with that upfront cocoa flavor.  The burn is still razor sharp and still putting out a lot of smoke.

Final Third

The cocoa seems to be the main focus on this cigar with the cedar flavor still in the background and I start to pick up notes of roasted coffee towards the last inch.  Didn’t need any relights or touch ups the whole way down to the nub.

Overall

I can’t say that the cigar was overly complex but I really enjoyed the flavors that were there.  I love cigars with that cocoa and wood flavor to it.  I can even begin to express how well done the construction of this cigar was.  If I was you I would get out there and find these and give em a try.

Keep em burnin’
