Victor Sinclair Vintage Doppel Gordo Cigar Review
This ridiculously sized 6×70 box pressed stick features a rough, lumpy thin dark chocolate colored wrapper with a velvety soft feel and pack, small veins, ragged seams, rough and sloppy double cap and a pungent manure aroma. First light reveals a problem right off the bat trying to cut it, as no cutter I have in my collection will do the job. Resorting to a good knife the first puffs had no resistance making it hard to smoke well, producing light airy mild sweet wood flavors with a short finish of the same. The first third burns perfectly and slowly taking 20 minutes for the first inch with a great burn line, tight ash and exactly the same flavor profile and body as the first puff. Surprising me with perfect performance to the 1/2 way point 40 minutes in, body is up to mild-medium and the flavors have shifted to a smooth sweet nuttiness with a slightly longer finish. Ending at 1:30 with a very hot squishy nub, the last bit showed no further changes. Thank you to viewer Steven Cavin for sending this in!
