Perdomo Patriarch Corojo corona extra (5 1/2x46)

Peppery spice with leather notes and citrus tones. A rich spice that is very pleasing; almost buttery. The finish is long with vanilla notes. Light black coffee notes. Very nice cigar. Medium to full bodied. Really enjoyed it.

Score: 92

Don Diego Grande (6x52)


Altadis sent me this cigar go try. It is very well made; nice construction. There were floral citrus notes with light pepper. The finish is light vanilla notes. The cigar has nice spice but it is quite mild. Nice tasting. This would be a good morning cigar or a beginner's cigar.

Cuve'e no. 151 robusto (5x50)
.


Dark brown cigar. There was black coffee spice with pepper. Sweet tones. Finish is short with almond and vanilla notes. Full bodied cigar. This cigar reminds me of a strong cup of black coffee with sugar in it. It would be a great after dinner cigar. The cigar produced a lot of smoke. Very good, very potent cigar.

Score: 92
