Pinar Del Rio Liga Especial Reserva Superior Salomon Cigar Review
This 6×66 perfecto stick features a dark chocolate mottled firmly packed slightly oily and toothy wrapper with a satin feel, small veins, tight invisible seams, large decorative cap and a strong pepper and cedar aroma. First light reveals a very easy draw with light medium bodied smoke showing a soft earth, creamy texture, oily and peppery finish with a slight spice zing. The first third produces much the same results as the first light, with a soft silky smoke and easy draw. It did require a large touchup going through the largest sections although it never went out. Burn is slow and after the attention, was very good. The 1/2 way point comes around 35 minutes showing no flavor shifts. Ending out at 1:25 the final third finally came into it’s own bringing richer medium-full body flavors of a creamy chocolate, earth, wood and pepper mix, carrying the same through a longer finish. Burn did not improve until past the band, needing another large touchup just before, with an inch difference side to side. Thank you very much to Pinar Del Rio for sending this sample in for review!
