Drew Estate Acid Blondie Belicoso Cigar Review
This 5×54 torpedo is of the blue line from Acid and is flavor infused. It has a thin medium tan wrapper with just a slick buttery feel, almost no veins and tight seams. The aroma is unique. Acid cigars are infused with oils, and this smells like something for Christmas. Very herbally, like sweet potpourii, vanilla extract, sandalwood, etc. First light reveals a great draw, plenty of light smoke and a very oily sweet flavor much like glycerin and candy. A bit of the potpourri flavor is there, but it’s mostly just sugar. The first third develops in to just a good amount of syrupy sweetness and a touch of the sandalwood. The finish is fairly long and overall it’s a medium body smoke. Smoke production and draw are fantastic, both easy and plentiful. While taking the bands off, huge amounts of glue slopped on the wrapper tore it open. Luckily the 2nd wrapper and binder held well enough to keep smoking. 30 min in at the 1/2 way point the flavors have changed to become a smooth sweet earth, while the special flavors are still slightly there but only come out on the long finish. Finishing at 50 min to the nub, the last third was the same since the 1/2 way point.
