Jose Marti Remedios Cigar Review

This 5.5×44 stick offers a thin, seemingly fragile toothy wrapper, hot cocoa colored with a slight peppery tobacco aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw, tons of rich smoke and a very heavy, deep tobacco flavor with a big white pepper kick. The first third brings a smooth oily leather quickly joined by a rich pepper and spice and a touch of sweetness, that carries through to the finish. Body is a medium-full with a thick rich smoke that leaves a nice oil on the palate. The 2nd third brings more changes, dropping the pepper but adding steak at points, and the sweetness progressed to a touch of caramel. Coming in to the last third the flavors transition to a creamy mint and cinnamon with a warm smooth nutty finish. Ending at 1:10 after getting very hot, the cinnamon and nuts took over the flavor department, leaving a crisp short finish. Thank you very much to Mark T. for sending in this sample for review!

    I’m glad that you mentioned that you can taste a meatiness or steak in some cigars! I’ve never smoked this particular one that you’ve reviewed here, but I have distinctly tasted a nice meatiness in both the Don Lino Africa (Kiboko) and in an Oliveros XL Bold (Toro). It was pretty pronounced to me in both that I was tasting meat! Maybe I’m off my rocker but has anyone ever tasted caramelized onions in a stogie? I’m sure that I have tasted that in some that I have smoked in the past…and NO I was not eating it at the time I was smoking! I’m just curious if anyone has?

    Steak…. Hmmm… Do you actually think of _meat_…. or it is sort of a Charcoaled-Broiled thing?
    That I can see,… for sure…
