Ambos Mundos - Robusto #1
Earthy, very pleasant
Lots of smoke, nice earthy, almost chocolate flavor. Burned well, without too much kick. Very nice.
Tatuaje - Petite Cazadores Reserva
What a great cigar. Great construction, makes lots of thick smoke, and great balance. Earthy, leathery flavor. Not sure why these don't get more attention. I certainly recommend.
Camacho - Cigarillo
Great flavor, burns well, consistent. We REALLY like the Camachos, and find them superior to a number of other cigarillos we've tried (Hoya de Monterey, Davidoff, etc). Really recommend these for a quick smoke.
Padron - 2000 Maduro
Smooth and a good burn.
Butera - Royal Vintage: Latakia #2 50g
Sure am glad I gave this blend a try. Smokes well, with a nice full flavor. But, it's got a smooth taste and clean finish. Definitely one of my new favorites.
Savinelli - English Mixture 50g
I was looking forward to trying this tobacco, being a fan of "English" style blends. Overall, I was disappointed. With a little drying, it smoked well, not too high in nicotine, and not overwhelming. However, while it's not complex in flavor, it has a slightly bitter edge and doesn't finish well. If you like this type of blend, look elsewhere....
Samuel Gawith - Full Virginia Flake 50g
Very mild and pleasant
A very mild and pleasant smoke, with just a little kick. It will need some drying out, and for those unfamiliar with flake tobacco: it will need some work to get it into a "smoke-able" texture.
Dunhill - Nightcap 50g
Full bodied, but still a mild finish and not too much kick. It's my bread and butter.
