CO 1st Third Cigar Pre-Order And Review

We are VERY near the official launch of the CO 1st Third cigar, first in a series of limited releases from CigarObsession and Blanco Cigars!  Full production will be available by the end of August 2015. This 6×52 box-pressed stick (my pre-production is not) features an oily, satin finished firmly packed dark brown wrapper with small veins, tight invisible seams, mottled markings, a large double cap and pungent cocoa pepper and earth aroma. First light reveals a great draw with medium-full bodied smoke showing a very slick smooth slightly sweet earth followed by the same finish plus a tough of zing pepper.  The first third develops to a smooth medium body of the same profile while the finish grows very long, lasting well to the next draw.  Hitting the 1/2 way point at 35 minutes the 2nd third drops the earth going to a smooth sweet creamy cocoa on the draw keeping the same long finish.  Ending at 1:10 the last third shifted the sweetness to notes of cinnamon joining the cocoa while the finished dropped the pepper going to a smooth light earth.

  • BIG_Traveler

    I just pre-ordered!

    Can you talk about the blend or is it a secret???

    You mentioned it’s coming from Nicaragua; & I assume it’s made at Plasencia’s “The Cathedral” factory in Esteli.

    I’d like to know if it’s a Nica Puro or if it’s some kind of a multi country blend.
    Of course; I’ll smoke it anyways…Just curious.


    • Yep made there – it’s a Nicaraguan Honduran blend with an Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper 🙂

      • BIG_Traveler

        Awesome! Thanks, can’t wait to get them.

    Just visited Dave Blanco at Blanco cigars. Waked in off the street (wife and I vacationing in the area) He was awesome. We sat out back in the shipping area and smoked a cigar and had coffee. Discussed cigars and life. Great guy!!
    Blanco Nine is incredible. Picked up three 5packs of CO first third and Blanco Nine sampler. The CO first thirds are a delight. Brian’s review doesn’t do it justice. Buy it!!! You won’t be disappointed.
