Blue Mountain Cigars Doble Capa Cigar Review

This 6 1/8×52 stick features a barberpole wrapper alternating with a dark brown and tan pattern, a fine sandpaper texture, firm even pack, minimal veins, tight seams, a few imperfections, torpedo head and nice barnyard aroma. First light reveals a very snug draw, the torpedo tip looking very snug and tight. Minimal smoke output and mild flavors of a faint wood. After sniping the head down as far as I can without it unraveling, the draw didn’t improve but thankfully the smoke output and flavor did. Flavors remain mild and go back and forth between earth and wood, as the different parts of the wrapper trade off a little bit. 30 minutes in just starting the 2nd third, draw opens up a bit, still snug but body and smoke output increase very nicely. The flavor profile is also joined by a sweet cinnamon that leaves an oily spice on the lips through the finish. With the ash holding on to the last third, the 2nd passes by dropping the wood and bringing up the sweetness on the draw. After rolling the head and loosening everything up draw is now perfect with a razor sharp burn, plentiful thick smoke output and a long earth and tobacco finish. Ending at 1:10 min the last third showed no further changes. After finishing the review, I did get quite a strength buzz and headrush from the nicotine. Thank you very much to Bluemountaincigars.com for sending this for review!

    Once again great review Bryan, thanks so much! One question: I commonly get a bitter liquorice like flavor in the last inch or so of the cigar with few exceptions trying many brands. I always figured it was the tar burning that had been deposited there during the smoking of the stick. I have never heard you mention this in your reviews. Does this happen to you also, or am I just smoking my cigars too fast? Thanks again!

    • You probably smoke them down farther than I like to. I stop when the smoke temp goes up because I don’t care for the warmer sensation or all the flavor shifts from it. I get a nutty taste usually first and that’s where I like to end.

      Yes, I get the same. Good advise when to quit smoking your cigar…I normally taste a burnt nutty taste when I know its about time to put it down.

    Thanks Bryan,
    I always watch the reviews around 8:00 P.M.
    After a rough day, it’s like a 5 or a 10 minute vacation.
    Question, have you ever had a cigar that so bad you threw it away before the review ended.
    Thanks
    Tony

    • Only a couple, but I couldn’t tell you which ones – it is on cam though – maybe some viewers can remember!

      take a look at the CAO LX2 review…

      • Bill O

        Wow your right, you can even hear the cigar bounce off of something when Bryan throws it!lol If we didn’t have some bad sticks I guess we wouldn’t appreciate the good ones.

  • Hey, Bryan.

    Just a quick FYI, the Blue Mountain link in the written review isn’t working.

    I did check out their site, though. I may have to get me a sampler.
