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!

    What is your preferred ring gauge?

  • Kace

    Needed a guillotine paper cutter for this one.

  • stevenknisley

    the 2nd version of the perfect cutter the one with the round finger holes has a bigger hole for 65+ring gauges.

      Nope. I had them all. The only bigger one is the tri-blade scissors, all the perfect cutters are the same.

    Never had a cigar above the 54 ring gauge. I might have to grab one just to see.

    hey guys i’m thinking about getting me some of VS’s but i don’t know if theres a catch to these. bad burn, snug draw, etc. i want to get some cause they have some decent prices. and not only that but i’ve noticed that more and more people are getting these. would you guys definitely recommend these?

    Seems like a good time to invest in a good pair of cigar scissors…surprised with all the swag you receive that you do not have a good pair of cigar scissors.

      Lol all the swag! What you see is what I have the rest goes out in all the contests! Why would invest in a tool I needed for the first time in thousands of cigars and may never need again?

  • Kace

    I’ve watched this review 3 times. Hilarious. Thanks for taking one for the team. I agree though. Why spend $$ on something you would prob use once evey 1000 cigars.

  • gary333

    now that is just ridiculous.. I want to try it just to see how ridiculous it is haha and at least the burn wouldnt bother me!

  • JoeMeatJr

    why make something so ridiculous?

    • Mobleyjared

      It makes people with insuricties feel better.

      • JJO

        Never heard of that particular disease. ;)

        • Mobleyjared

          Sorry, insecurities

          • JJO

            I know; just playing with you. :)

  • mfsaur

    A friend just gave me one of these, I’m honestly scared to approach it lol. I guess I’ll see how it goes

  • lostonmonday

    I’ve cut 3 of these with a Cuban Crafters Perfect Cutter, and it does just fine. It seems like the cigar doesn’t fit into it, but the blades make enough contact to lop the top cleanly. The draw still sucks, but I like these better than I thought I would.

    • lostonmonday

      Oh yeah, and they plump up like a ball park frank!

  • stogiemalt

    I cracked up when you said “fetish people” lol, great review.
