The first thing I noticed on the cigar was the veiny wrapper. It’s not the smoothest wrapper in the world, but it does have a beautiful dark color to it. The band shows some age and the size is a Corona Gorda which is my favorite vitola.

The foot of the cigar smells really peppery and the wrapper smells a little sweet and cedary. Checking the the draw, it left a little bit of oak and peppery taste on my palate. Only thing left is to light it up. Shall we?

Vintage Review: Saint Luis Rey Serie A

Saint Luis Rey Serie A

Here is another experiment. From time to time, I manage to dig up some vintage cigars. When I saw a batch of Saint Luis Rey Serie A dating from before 2000 (i.e. no box code) in La Casa del Habano Dubai, I couldn't resist and picked up a few. As I feel it is not proper to base a full review on this experience, I have created a separate category called Vintage Reviews. Enjoy.

Underrated Hermoso #4 reaps big-time dividends in the taste department. This stick was reputed to be a favorite of Mr. Frank Sinatra back in the 40's when he made regular trips to Havana.
