Chamuco Platinum Belicoso Cigar Review

This 6×54 stick features a dark brown lightly packed wrapper with minimal veins, tight seams, dry fine tooth and very pungent sweet heavy wood aroma, like sawdust. First light reveals a slightly snug draw with good thick medium-full bodied smoke output showing flavors of a bitter dark wood with a long smooth finish. The first third calms down quite a bit to a mild-medium with just a slightly syrupy wood taste and short clean finish, very simple. Hitting the 1/2 way point 30 minutes in, there are absolutely no changes so far. The ash holds on very nicely falling in a solid chunk and construction is still perfect. Ending at 1:10 where it started to get warm and bitter, the last third still remained the same. Thank you very much to viewer Ty Papke for providing this for review!

    Thanks for the review, Brian! I must warn anybody who is thinking of buying these that they are very inconsistent from box to box. I loved the box of Belicosos so much that I wanted another. CI was out of the Belicoso size, so I got a box of Churchills. Unfortunately, the flavor is completely different! The woody, sawdust flavor that Brian mentioned (of which I loved so much about the first box) is completely gone, and it is not replaced with anything desirable. The construction is great, but the flavor is just terrible. Perhaps a very long time in the humidor will help…

      Usually different sized cigars have different tastes and burn qualities.
