Puros Indios LE Viejo

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Wrapper – 10 year aged Ecuador Sumatra

Binder – Ecuador Sumatra

Filler – Dominican Republic, Nicaragua & Brazil

Size- 7 1/2 x 47

Pre-Smoke & Construction:

Cut Method- Dual blade grip

This cigar has a nice rich chocolate wrapper with some hints of marbling through out.  The wrap is very tight and shows a lot of texture. The pre light draw had a natural tobacco flavor and a slight nuttiness.

After the light:

Method- TriFlame Tourch

Started off with a sweetness and leathery with a pretty tough draw, but with the size of this cigar I expected this. There is a touch of pepper to it through the first 1/2, it then falls out and the sweet tobacco flavor comes through more and has an added nuttiness to it.  The draw fixed itself with in the first third, no troubles with the burning, no touch ups needed. I would consider this a medium cigar.

Ash length- 2.5 inches

Flavor- 6.0

Draw- 6.0

Construction- 8.0

Appearance- 8.0

Box Worthy? I picked up a 5 pack for $1.00 a stick, well worth the buck.  I would not get a box, but I will be buying other sizes to try out.

Alec Bradley- Select Cabinet Reserve

Wrapper: Honduran Trojes
Binder: Indonesian
Filler: Honduran, Nicaraguan
Made In: Honduras
Size: 5×50 Robusto

Age: 2 months

Smoking Location- Back yard, beautiful night.

Cut Method- Dual blade grip

Pre-Smoke & Construction:

This is a very nice looking cigar with a wrapper dark brown in color and is very oily.  The band is rather large but looks very nice. There is also a secondary band on the foot that states Select Cabinet Reserve. The smell is sweet and spicy with a bit of fresh cut hay to it.  I tend to get this from most AB cigars. The pre light draw has spice, and chestnuts.

After the light:

Method- TriFlame Tourch

Lit nice and even, producing a nice thick cloud almost blue in color. The burn is nice and even with a gray ash, almost chunky is appearance. The first third of the cigar is heavy spice with earthiness, but has a sweet side to it.  After a couple minutes the spice died down and the sweetness picked up. Towards the middle the spice was almost completely gone, still sweet and I started noticing a nice leather, and no hay like I was expecting.  The last bit of the cigar changed again and lost the leather, the sweetness and earthy stayed through the end. Over all a complex cigar.

Ash length- 2 inches

Flavor- 7.0

Draw- 8.0

Construction- 8.0

Appearance- 8.0

Box Worthy? I would surely jump on a box if I found the right price.
