Posted in Cigar Reviews on January 16, 2013 by youngbuckbotl

Wrapper: Nicaraguan

Filler: Nicaraguan

Binder: Nicaraguan

Vitola: Perfecto

This stick I picked up at my local shop, well because truthfully they didn’t have anything we hadn’t reviewed. I know you all can’t get these where you are but if this sound good to you hit me up on twitter and I would be more than welcome to send some your way.

With the initial puff I got a very dry and airy taste, with a couple more puffs nothing changed so I was quite disappointed. But about a quarter inch down the flavor just popped, I got a very nice Nicaraguan spice along with some earthy tones, this stayed with the stick pretty much all the way through the first half.

After about 2/3rds of the stick I got a great chocolate note that mixed great with the Nicaraguan spice. Those two notes stayed with this stick all the way till its end.

 

This stick I would say was a pretty decent stick. It took a little babying at first but after it got going it really opened up and became an enjoyable stick. Till next time everyone God bless and I will see you in two weeks.

Mystery Stogie

Wrapper: ?

Binder: ?

Filler: ?

Size: Box press 6.5 x 42ish

This stick I found going through my humidor earlier today. I can honestly say I have no idea where I got it from but it was pretty good other than the fact that I couldn’t get it to stay lit, maybe my humidity is to high. But anyways onto the review.

First half: With the first few puffs I got a nice little hit of pepper which soon subsided and gave off great woody notes with a nice amount of smoke. About two inches down it started to almost give off a sour note which was weird but complemented the woody notes to my surprise.

Final half: With the final half not much changed still a pretty good tasting cigar. With a great woody, not very complex taste to it. I would say with this guy I really did like all the notes but the only draw back I really had was that it just wouldn’t stay lit.

 

So for a cigar that I have no idea where I got, I would say it was pretty good and I would smoke it again if I knew where I had gotten it. Kind of a shame I don’t know where I got it from. Until next time you all have a great christmas/holiday festivals and make sure you spend it will good people. God bless and see you all in 2013.

Gurkha Ghost Shadow

Wrapper: Brazilian Maduro

First half – With the first half I got a very slight hint of spice within about the first inch, which then mellowed down and just ever so slightly sat in the background. Then the earthy tones came out to play. They stayed around for a while and then met up with a little citrus and cinnamon. Does anyone else feel like they are reading a children’s book?

Second half – Now with the second half absolutely nothing changed. The cinnamon, citrus, earthy tones, and the spice stayed just the same. The only difference was that I realized it left a horrible taste on my lips.

With that being said I will say the construction on this cigar was pretty good the only thing that I would complain about other than the bad taste would be the ash. This ash was flakier than the dandruff on an 80 year old man. I was constantly knocking the ash off this stick because if I didn’t it would have fallen onto my shirt. So with that being said this cigar didn’t impress me one bit from the tasteless tobacco to the dandruff ash I wasn’t impressed and for $8 I probably will never buy this stick again.

La Duena Belicoso

Posted in Cigar Reviews on November 21, 2012 by youngbuckbotl

Wrapper: Connecticut Broadleaf

Binder: Nicaraguan, Connecticut Broadleaf

Filler: Nicaraguan, Connecticut Broadleaf

Size: 4 3/4 x 48 Petit Belicoso

 

From the very start I knew this was going to be fantastic. The wrapper was just to die for, I don’t know but just something about that wrapper just tasted so good. After my mouthgasim I decided to light it. The first couple of puffs I got a whole bunch of coffee and woody notes with a suddle spice. This stayed pretty much the same through the first third.

Now with the second third it really didn’t change. Other than the fact that the spice dropped completely and the coffee became richer nothing really changed. Still just a very good draw with a fantastic burn.

Now with the final third nothing really changed, the woody notes became more predominate but nothing extreme. Like the rest of the cigar the draw was perfect not a single thing wrong that I could complain about and as you all know my standards are pretty high.

This cigar I would have no problem buying a box. I absolutely loved it. There must be something about that Pepin family, I cant find a single stick they make that I don’t like. I take that back but any who I really enjoyed this stick and for around $8 its priced pretty well. Have a great Thanksgiving and like always God bless.
