El Credito El Perrito War Of Flavors Cigar Review

This very rustic 5.5×38 cigar is completely hand made and rolled without a mold, and thus features a very lumpy construction with a dark brown slightly toothy wrapper, minimal veins, fairly large slightly uneven seams, a dry firm feel and oily tobacco aroma. The tip is pre-cut and the first light reveals a perfect draw, although the small 20 or so RG tip feels weird in my mouth it’s producing thick rich smoke with medium-full body flavors of leather and a bright crisp tobacco with a long finish. The first third shows many different flavors popping in and out from one draw to the next. Leather comes and goes, it gets earthy especially on the finish, a creamy coffee and pepper comes and goes – quite varied. Draw is perfect, burn is very good, the smoke output is great, very thick and rich. 15 minutes in, still in the first third, flavors shift again to a very creamy leather with cinnamon. The 1/2 way point comes and only adds a bit more pepper and heat on the finish, giving a bit pf pepper kick to let you know it’s there. The other flavors are still present and bouncing around from draw to draw. Ending at 45 minutes, the last third showed no further changes. Thank you very much to Team La Gloria for sending this for review, I greatly appreciate it!

    I was surprised by the strength and fullness of this homely little stick. Anyone who thinks this will be a quick smoke will be in for a shock. Took me about 50 minutes or so to get to the last inch. Watch out for inconsistent ashing, too. I was pretty impressed by it, but I think I still prefer the J. Fuego Originals in both Origen and Gran Reserva Corojo No.1 for their slightly smoother flavors.

    Great review.

    I just got the latest JR catalog. They have these for $74.32/ box of 50. That sounded like a good deal, and I remembered you reviewed it, so I came back and watched it again. I don’t think I can pass it up.
