Behind The Stick:

And yet again, we come across a stick that truly is a mystery. I can find little to no reviews online, little to no information about the blend so I figured this would be the perfect cigar for me to debut our ‘Just a Taste’ Section. Short, quick reviews of the cigar itself – please leave a comment and let me know if you’d like to see more short reviews!

Good construction, a few minor veins but nothing big. Evenly packed throughout with a nice light shine from the oils, all in all not bad. Band had some resistance but left no damage to the wrapper.

Started off with light wood, moved into a mild coco, cedar and natural tobacco flavor that held tight throughout the majority of the smoke. Towards the end the bitterness started to kick in reminding me of burnt paper and leather mixed over the coco and tobacco flavor. Not an overly complex cigar but very enjoyable.

Short sweet and to the point – if your a Maduro fan I’d highly suggest you picking a few up. If your not a big maduro fan, they are fairly cheap so go grab a single and see what you think. Not a ‘bad’ cigar – but given the price and the consistency, worth a visit – but don’t expect to be blown out of your seat. All in all, on my side, this will be a buy again.

About David
I started The Cigar Nut back in 2009 as a way to ensure after marriage that I would have 'leverage' to keep cigars an active part of my life, it has since become so much more, thanks to our team and viewers like you. I live just under an hour west of Downtown St. Louis with my wife and daughter and soon to add a son in January. I have been smoking cigars for a little under a decade, prefer medium to full body Nicaraguan and Dominican's but have been known to enjoy a Cuban here and there.

    Nice review man, I like the idea of sometimes a short review, sometimes that’s all you need. Seems like a good cigar and for the price how can you not try one, great job keep it up.

  2. Thanks for the good words! Glad you liked the shorter review, debating on doing that more often. Thanks again!

    Not sure about the maduro craze that has swept the cigar biz. Seems like every manufacturer is changing over. Oh well, sometimes change is good.

    Sometimes shorter is better……”That’s not what she said” LOL. It’s nice to see a quick and to the point take on something once in a while. Will have to try a few of these.

  6. HAHA – too funny. Yeah, I think I will try to make the ‘short and to the point’ reviews a once or twice a month deal. Glad ya like them and yes, you need to try the E Leon!

  7. Helpful blog, bookmarked the website with hopes to read more!

  8. This is by far the best looking site I’ve seen. It was completely easy to navigate and it was easy to look for the information I needed. Fantastic layout and great content!
