Like most tobacconists, I like to try a cigar before I make the decision to bring it into my humidor. No one wants to be stuck with a box of cigars that just simply does not move. When I saw this cigar, I made the snap decision to bring it into my humidor before I even had the chance to smoke it. I just had a gut feeling about it! Well, here is the review and I can tell you that I am happy with my decision!
Wrapper: Dominican Sun Grown
Binder: Dominican Habano
Filler: Dominican Habano
Appearance & Smell
Wowza! This has rich and earthy notes before lighting. I picked up quite a bit of cedar too. The pre-light smell really made me want to get into this smoke.
I went with my trusty flat cut by using a Xikar X1 to cut the cap. I lit the cigar with my double torch Xikar Enigma.
Burn & Draw
This cigar was awesome when it came to the burn and draw. It burned very evenly throughout the whole cigar with zero touch-ups. The draw was just a treat because I didn’t have to pull too hard but there was enough resistance to keep this burning evenly for a long time.
Strength & Body
I would definitely consider this a medium to a medium-plus cigar. The Sun Grown wrapper mixed the Habano really gives a nice body to this smoke with some real complexity.
This cigar was a treat! I am very pleased to see Aging Room going in this direction. Between the complexity of the flavors, the perfect burn, and the strength, I couldn’t have asked for a better afternoon smoke. For a $7 cigar, this was one I would definitely pick up again!
