Partagas Serie D No. 4 (Cuban) (4.88x50) Box code Oct., '07
A beautiful cigar. I picked this up from the LCDH in Roatan, Honduras; box code Oct. '07. A very spicy cigar with citrus undertones. Light white pepper noted. The finish is fairly long. Inter-mixed in the spice are light caramel notes. A perfect burning cigar. One of my favorite Cuban cigars. Love 'em!
Trinidad Maduro Churchill (7x58)
A huge cigar! It's heavy; dense; very well packed. This cigar has been in my humidor for over a year and a half. It is almost jet black! Eventhough it's so thick and heavy it drew well. As soon as you light this cigar you get a blast of spice with a ton of pepper! The maduro gives it a nice sweetness, too. Long finish. Very full bodied. Powerful cigar. The last quarter got a little harsh.
Don Pepin Garcia Serie JJ Sublime (6x54)
Nice, dense feeling cigar. Good looking construction. A ton of spice with citrus notes and some light pepper. Not quite the power of other DPG cigars. The finish is long. Spice is the primary "thing" with this cigar. Not as much citrus flavor as a DPG Blue or a 601 Red. More of a medium bodied cigar.
Padilla Series '68 Robusto (5x50)
Very spicy with pepper and leather undertones. Finish is fairly long. Nice spice and pepper combination. Very enjoyable. Medium bodied. Light citrus tones. Nice cigar.
