Varina Farms Breakfast Blend Churchill Cigar Review

This 7.2×54 stick features a firmly packed dark tan wrapper with a lumpy appearance, minimal veins, tight invisible veins, large double cap and pungent hay aroma.  It came wrapped in tissue paper and a 2nd large paper band.  First light reveals a slightly snug draw with the most mild smoke possible showing a hint of a sweet hay and short clean finish.  Smoke output is almost non existent.  The first third comes up to mild-medium body with flavors of a nut, honey and grassiness followed by a short finish.  Burn is very good and extremely slow even while double puffing to get any decent smoke production.  The 1/2 way point comes at 45 minutes with excellent construction and burn.  Flavors pick up nicely to a medium body with a hazelnut coffee and long smooth finish.  Ending at 1:25 with a good bit left it hit my limit for strength, going to medium-full while the body stayed down at medium going to just a nutty earth with a deep finish.

    I’ve smoked the Varina Farms Breakfast Blend for a few years, often while cutting the grass or occasionally when snowblowing in the winter. The auction site prices make them a good deal to pass around and with the paper sleeves they keep well in the humidor. As Bryan said there isn’t much smoke or flavor at the beginning but they do ramp up quickly.

    They had a Winter blend (maduro) that was pretty good.
