    Occidental Reserve Double Broadleaf
    Origin : Dominican Republic
    Format : Robusto
    Size : 124 x 19.84 mm
    Ring : 50
    Weight : N/A
    Price : $3.35 each

    I was browsing in the local cigar shop, and thought the chocolate color promised a smooth smoke. The price appealed to my working-class wallet as well.

    Appearance : [rating:4/5]
    This is a rich, chocolate brown maduro wrapper, mildly veined, but promising.

    Construction : [rating:4/5]
    The cigar was well cared for at the store, so the wrapper was yielding, but not brittle. There ware no glaringly soft spots either.

    Flavor : [rating:4/5]
    The flavor starts mild but gets increasingly spicy in the last third, with a peppery finish by the time you smoke down to the bands. It’s like a spicy ‘bon voyage’ that makes you eager to return. It was a great complement to the coffee I was drinking at the time.

    Value : [rating:5/5]
    For a flavorful smoke, $3.35 (single) was a good price. If you buy by the bundle, the value is even better.

    Overall Rating : [rating:overall/5]
    When a cigar maker’s name starts getting hot, you have expectations of good quality, delicious cigars. But that quality usually will cost a fair penny. Even though Occidental Reserve is a bundle cigar, this dark and tasty beauty from Alec Bradley is a great value.
