Tasting

Location: This review was made indoors in a cigar lounge.

Wrapper: Milk chocolate in colour, smooth and oily but with a slight rough texture of the veins.

Construction: Firm even feel.

Cold draw: Hay and gingerbread.

1st third:
Milk chocolate, medium roasted coffee, pencil wood. It’s like a sweet mild piece of wood, just resting in the mouth. It’s so friendly, innocent and enjoyable.

2nd third:
A slight peppery sting in the middle of the tounge. The flavours keeps steady from previous part.
It’s like a wooden straw dipped in a cup of Wiener Melange. Very interesting, so creamy and smooth.

The burn: Burns steady, sharp and the ash is white and firm.

Smoke: Voluminous, light to the touch and cool.

3rd third:
A little sting of the pepper on the lips, but still very enjoyable as before.

Conclusion:
This is one of my absolute favourite smokes of all time. So suave, creamy and perfect. This is ranked highly in my book. Unique flavours, you don’t need a coffee to make it any better it’s perfect as it is.

Result: In my book this is a 97 point cigar. Because for me this is not found anywhere else. Unique.

The Ramon Allones Club Allones was released in 2015 as a limited edition by Habanos S.A. I heard a lot of great things about this cigar, so I was excited to give it a try. How did it measure up? Well … honestly it wasn’t quite what I hoped it would be. Read on to find out what my experience was like.

Appearance : 4 out of 5 stars
These cigars have oily maduro wrappers which are a deep saturated brown color. And when I say they are oily, I mean very oily. There are more than a few prominent veins—in fact, the appearance of the leaf is kind of “wrinkly.” Whether you see that as a plus or a minus is pretty subjective, but to me it was a visual detractor. The gold band is a nice accent to the overall look of the cigar. I noticed with mine that it felt a bit tightly packed, but I wasn’t all that concerned about it given the great reviews I’d read.

Construction : 3 out of 5 stars
Initially, I wasn’t expecting to have any problems with this cigar. In fact, the beginning was very pleasant all around, both in terms of flavors and construction. Draw wasn’t bad, actually. I thought it might be tight given how hard the stogie felt, but it was actually pretty close to ideal.

It was the burn that was the problem. I’m used to having to make a few minor adjustments—that is typical with any cigar. But I had to make multiple major adjustments. Worse, the cigar actually went out, and it did it twice no less. This is far from impressive, especially given the cost of this cigar.

Flavor : 3.5 out of 5 stars
It’s strange; I’ve heard so many other reviewers say that the Ramon Allones Club Allones Limited Edition 2015 has strong and complex flavors, but my experience was far from that.

On the contrary, to me the flavors were mixed and muted. At the very start, they were fairly enjoyable with notes of brown sugar, chocolate, natural tobacco, and lots of fruit. As the smoke progressed, some spicy notes came into play, and the others faded into the backdrop.

The problem was that they never came back—and even the spicy notes seemed muted. Worse, an ammonia flavor started creeping to the foreground, which thoroughly put me off of the Ramon Allones Club Allones. The last third was the worst.

To me it is pretty clear that what is going on here (with the flavors at least) is just that this is a very young cigar. That is why the flavors have not really had time to develop any strength, and that is exactly what is responsible for the ammonia taste as well. It is possible that with age, these flavors will improve. As it is, with the construction issues, I cannot be bothered to find out.

Overall Rating : 3.25 out of 5 stars (3.25)
I hate being hard on a smoke, especially one which I was highly anticipating and which other people seem to like. I have seen mixed reviews for the Ramon Allones Club Allones; some people love it while others hate it. A lot of people seem more forgiving than me, but they didn’t report the construction flaws I experienced. Maybe that was a one-off; I don’t know.

But other reviewers do report the same experience I had with the flavors being too muted and young for their taste. If you do try this cigar, I recommend you wait a few years and give it some time to age. Right now, it is a disappointment for the price tag.

Davidoff Club House

Davidoff tobacco masters have created these very special Limited Edition “Club House” Toro Cigars with moments of shared pleasure in mind. The connoisseur’s choice, wherever he or she is relaxing, particularly enjoying the fairways on a golf course.

Creation of the Davidoff Masters Edition 2013 “Club House” Toro

For this cigar, the Davidoff Master Blenders decided to play the long game, taking adventurous, sometimes risky, shots. They mixed rare and specially matured tobaccos, focusing on delivering delightful aromas rather than pure strength.

The majestic Gran Toro format allows the aficionado to enjoy the cigar’s intensive but balanced and nuanced taste over its entire length: the exceptional Yamasá wrapper, Mejorado filler and Ecuadorian binder develop mildly peppery and creamy notes, followed by elegant hints of chocolate, caramel and coffee.

Finally, displaying a playful elegance, both the cigar box, which is finished in high gloss white, and the second band carry a golf ball pattern.

The new Davidoff Masters Edition Club House Toro is the ultimate way to fill your time beautifully on a golf course with your friends.

This exclusive edition is limited to 7’000 boxes worldwide and the Davidoff Masters Edition 2013 “Club House” Toro can certainly be described as a collector’s item. As we all know, the perfect round of golf depends upon the choice or club and cigar.

This Limited Edition will be available from the end of May onwards in Appointed Merchants across the US.

After a week of fighting a cold and not being able to enjoy a nice cigar, I had the chance to light up a couple cigars this weekend. Saturday morning I woke nice and early and decided to start the day off with this cigar. E.P. Carrillo cigars are making their way into stores around my area, so these are still rare for the most part.

id="more-11494">

Appearance : 4 out of 5 stars /> This cigar’s wrapper is a light to medium shade of brown and very smooth. Throughout the entire stick, there are only a couple thin veins. The veins are no cause for concern to me. The cap features multiple layers and evenly spaced and placed on top of each other. The flush cap can barely be felt by hand. There is also a sweet and earthy smell coming off this stick.

Construction : 2.5 out of 5 stars /> The one thing about this cigar that bothered me was the presence of a few cracks in the thin wrapper. The cracks were between the band and the cap. The cigar itself is very solid from cap to foot. The cigar cut very clean, and was very easy to light. The cigar burned perfectly even throughout the duration of it. The draw was very easy and helped to produce a good amount of dense smoke. The ash was very strong and held on until about the halfway point of the cigar, even in the wind. As the cigar progressed and heated up, the cracking in the wrapper got worse.

href="http://www.cigarinspector.com/images/cigar/ep-carrillo-club-52-1b.jpg" rel="lightbox" title="EP Carrillo Club 52"> class="aligncenter" width="450" src="http://www.cigarinspector.com/images/cigar/ep-carrillo-club-52-1.jpg" alt="EP Carrillo Club 52" height="180" />

Flavor : 3.5 out of 5 stars /> Upon lighting this cigar, I was greeted with a nice amount of earthy tones. There was also a good amount of nuttiness. As this cigar slowly burned, there was some spice that began to build. There was also a little bit of leather that combined nicely with the spice. After a couple inches, the earth was still very strong, and the spice picked up a little more. A combination of woodiness and leather coats the palate. By halfway, the spice had come out and became the main flavor. The last couple inches were pretty uneventful. The nuttiness and spice were on about the same level with accents of wood, earth, and leather.

Value : 4 out of 5 stars /> I can’t say anything bad about a cigar for $6.50. That is pretty much an average price for just about everything I smoke. There are definitely better cigars out there for this price, but on the flip side, there are just as many, if not more that aren’t worth this price.

Overall Rating : 3.5 out of 5 stars /> I would have rated this cigar much higher, but the cracking of the wrapper bothered me. Also I didn’t like how one-dimensional the flavor was. I’m not saying the flavor was bad, I was just expecting a little bit of a change every once and awhile. Would I buy this cigar again? Yes I would, but I wouldn’t consider this a box worthy cigar.
