Medium bodied from start to finish.Very consistent aroma and flavor profile filled with some earthy notes and spices.  Incredibly smooth draw with a perfect amount of character with a lot of flavor and balance.  Excellent construction and burn.  A bit of sweetness in the flavor with an overall steady strength and flavors.  A very well made cigar to the finish.

Cigars Number 23!

Back2Back Connecticut

by Davidoff  Cigar

 Wrapper: Connecticut

Binder: Nicaragua

Filler: Nicaraguan

Vitola (Size): 6” x 60

    Appearance: I must say this cigar had a creamy with a silky feel with plenty of cedar notes on the pre-ought aroma. Your classic looking 6×60 and somewhat solid to the touch. It really reminds me of a review we did of the Room 101 Big Payback back in 2015 not quite a 7×70 but ya.

Final Thoughts:

An underlying sweetness on the finish was met with spicy cedar and wood notes. Excellent construction with an even burn and nice overall development. Although I really wish I could have gotten something that held up the Davidoff name of top quality cigars I didn’t really get that from cigar. Not overly complex with some changes in intensity as well flavor and aroma. Medium body and strength all around with a long and earthy finish.

Cigars Number 22!

Knuckle Buster

by Punch Cigar

 Wrapper: Nicaraguan Habano

Binder: Nicaraguan Habano

Filler: Honduras, Nicaraguan

Vitola (Size): 6” x 50

    Appearance: The Knuckle Buster has a dark and oily, silky smooth aromatic wrapper. A very subtle pre-light smell.

 Final Thoughts:

While I was hoping for much more out of the Knuckle Buster coming from Punch cigars was looking for a punch. This was far from past Punch cigars as far as complexity of characteristic. Although there was good spice aromas through the nose and creaminess. An underlying sweetness came and never intensified. Good construction with plenty of aromatic clouds of smoke. Medium-strength and medium flavor easy to smoke cigar delivering full flavor.

Cigars Number 21!

La Vencedorn

by Villiger Cigars

 Wrapper: Nicaraguan

Binder: Nicaraguan

Filler: Nicaraguan

Vitola (Size): 6” x 50

    Appearance:  The smells of chocolate, cedar and oak. Some sweetness on the foot with more cocoa.  On the cold draw more cocoa/chocolate tastes.

 Final Thoughts:

Very smooth with some marbleized look.  Nice draw but overall smoked very good, providing a lot of earthy, rich-tobacco flavors and aroma.  A nice medium bodied and nicely balanced on the palate.  Good complexity and consistent medium bodied with medium flavors.

Final Grade 89!
