Saturday, December 15th, 2007

After returning from watching my niece graduate from Newberry College on Saturday morning I relaxed in my leather recliner with a La Aurora 1495 Churchill. (7x50)

This was my first time smoking one of these. The cigar had nice construction. It had a dark, caramel flavor. I'd put this cigar between medium and full bodied. The ash was light gray and splintered. After the first inch or so the cigar developed a smooth creaminess. There was a slight amoung of pepper noticed at the 1/2 way point. This cigar did not put off a huge amount of smoke, yet it burned very evenly. It was slow burning, too. The cigar approached full bodied, but fell just short. Nice cigar.

Score: 8.5

Partagas Serie P No. 2 (6x52) Cuban

Since this cigar has a fat torpedo end, I decided to clip only the bare minimum so it would be as long as possible! Great tasting Cuban cigar. Medium bodied with some pepper and spice. Absolutely perfect burn; very even! This cigar has great flavor. Not overpowering but oh-so satisfying!

Score: 9.0

Montecristo Edmundo (5.3x52) Cuban

Nice full bodied Cuban cigar. Another cigar with great flavor. Much more full bodied than the PSP2 and has a lot more pepper to it! Nice construction with an even burn. This is a great cigar. If you like Cuban cigars, you need to try these!

Score: 9.5

Perdomo Reserve Edition Golf Double Eagle (7x54)

I love this cigar! It starts off with lots of Caramel flavor, and maintains it throughout! They say it has a Connecticut wrapper but it's much darker than your typical Connecticut, with much more taste! I don't typically like Connecticut wrapped cigars, but this one is full of Nicaraguan filler! This is a nice, fat cigar! It's medium-full bodied with a good amount of pepper thrown in. Great cigar!

Score: 9.0

Oliva V Figurado (6x60)

I lit this cigar at the start of the Cowboys game and the cigar was about the only thing good about the game! The Cowboys gave one to rival Philadelphia!

This is an absolutely beautiful cigar. I limited my cut of the cap to the bare minimum. The cigar started out smooth with caramel flavors. For a cigar that's suppose to have a lot of ligero in it, I don't taste it! Maybe I'm nuts but this cigar is more medium bodied than full bodied! It doesn't have a big punch to it! I started noticing some spice at the 1/3 point. The cigar had a tight ash. Not overly peppery but it really came in at the 1/2 way point. Very nice cigar.

Score: 9.0

Torano 1916 Robusto (5.5x52)

This is a great cameroon cigar! Lots of full bodied caramel flavor! The spiceyness is amazing!! It had a nice, even burn. This cigar was first gifted to me by VigorishSLC on the board. I have loved them ever since! This cigar has a wonderful flavor! Cameroon lovers, try this one!

Score: 9.0
