Felipe Gregorio Doppia Forza Tiny Cigar Review
This 7.5×56 stick features a dark brown mottled firmly packed wrapper with a buttery soft feel, minimal veins, tight seams, double cap and rich raisin & hay aroma. First light reveals a great draw with plentiful medium-full bodied smoke production showing a big oily bitter hay flavor that carries long through the finish. The first third unfortunately suffers from a loose draw combined with the large ring gauge, proving to be a problem for the binder and wrapper to keep up with the filler. It requires touchups and quite a bit of attention to stay lit evenly. When it does produce good smoke, flavors are just a plain ashy dark tobacco both on the draw and finish with a damp aftertaste. Hitting the 1/2 way point at 1.5 hours, it continued to burn very poorly, needing touchups periodically then finally needing a recut near the band to clear a crispy chared hard spot. Draw is extremely loose flavors are fairly mild and the strength continues to ramp up well past the body at this point. Ending it at 2 hours it luckily never went to full strength but was all I could tolerate. If you love ligero, give it a shot. Thank you very much to Felipe Gregorio Cigars for providing this for review!
