Fonseca Sun Grown Cedar No. 2 Cigar Review

Fonseca Sun Grown Cedar No. 2 Cigar Review

This 6.5×52 stick offers a cedar wrapper for protection, under which is dark chocolate, thick and slightly toothy wrapper with small veins, tight seams and a tobacco and cocoa aroma. First light reveals an overwhelming cedar taste that almost takes your breath away. It is very smooth and mild bodied however, with a touch of sweetness that turns almost bitter on the finish. The first third develops the wood even more adding a touch of oily earth especially on the long finish. The body is approaching medium, smoke production is low, the burn and draw are perfect. The stick remains consistent to the 1 hour mark in the last third where it finishes with a big deep earth flavor and medium-full body. Smoke production rises, still staying oily and smooth. Ending at 1:20 it proved to be a very well constructed enjoyable smoke. Thank you very much to Jeremie Plouffe for generously sending this in for review!

The Griffin’s Perfecto Cigar Review

The Griffin’s Perfecto Cigar Review

This 4 5/8×52 perfecto stick offered a medium tan smooth wrapper with good seams and a rock hard pack. Presenting draw problems until 1/4″ was clipped off the head and a further 1/2″ was burned off the foot, it finally settled to a just slightly firm draw. Burn was very good all the way down giving a rich voluminous smoke output. Flavors were very consistent showing a creamy cedar wood and slight pepper kick, with a short clean finish just leaving a touch of the pepper. Total burn time was 55min. Thank you very much to Michael Yamashita for sending this in for review, I greatly appreciate it!
