VegaFina Sumum Edicion Especial 2010 Cigar Review

This 5×54 cigar features a rich oily dark brown wrapper with a smooth firm feel, minimal veins, tight invisible seams, triple cap and very pungent oily wood aroma. First light reveals a snug draw but with good smoke output giving a complex first batch of flavors. It’s creamy both in flavor and texture, a light musty tobacco, a bright light leather and a very thick chewy slick smoke especially on the short finish. The first third develops much the same way, bringing body to medium-full with a core of the light creamy sweet leather, adding a light cedar through the finish. 40 minutes in at the 1/2 way point the flavors have completely changed up. Now it’s quite deep with a core of an earthy wood and tobacco, still very smooth and slick, while the draw has opened up a touch and the finish has grown quite long. Ending at 1:05 minutes, the last third transitions again mixing the flavors of the first two almost evenly. Still deep and near full bodied, it has the leather back with a touch of sweet and tang at the same time, with a core of tobacco and wood along with the dry long finish. Thank you very much to Altadis for providing this sample for review!

    Looks like Altadis finally has a winner on their hands. I’m going to have to track some of these down.

    I just had one of these last night due to a recommendation from my local tobacconist. Really enjoyed it but my stick had a very loose draw (which I prefer) and a razor-sharp burn, unlike yours. I’ll have to try another one to see whose stick was the exception to the rule.

    Was smoking this cigar when your review came up on my phone! 😀 Got some iodine aromas also in the second third. Great review again Brian on a surprising cigar, thanks!
