Bernie Parent Cigars BSB No1 Cigar Review
This 4.5×54 box pressed stick features a outer band decorated as goalie pads, covering a very dark brown mottled wrapper with a slight oil sheen, butter soft feel, spongy pack, minimal veins, tight invisible seams, double cap and rich oily hay aroma. First light reveals a huge stem at the head which ruins the cap and shoulder, breaching 180 deg around with the cut. This was my only sample so I had to go with it. It was leaking but was smoking fairly normally regardless. Flavors were a sweet, oily creamy butter and tobacco with a silky smooth finish and plentiful smoke output and a medium body. The first third burns very poorly through no fault of the cut, that’s actually holding on well. It required a huge touchup to correct but was still putting off good flavors. Everything was similar to this point with just a tiny pepper and earth coming in through the finish. By the 1/2 way point at 25 minutes flavors remain the same, burn is still off but it’s smoking just fine. Ending at 45 minutes where it got too warm, the whole thing proved to be consistent in blend. Thank you very much to viewer Kevin Walsh for sending this sample in!
