The Camacho Candela delivers those candela qualities while at the same time shows some peppery and earthy qualities. It had guts, and that is what you need with a candela wrapper to make it successful.
The La Instructora Perfection Invicto is a fun size that gives the smoker the experience to enjoy all the tobaccos in the blend and see the impact that they have on the cigar with a different ring gauge. If you want to know what quality Dominican Criollo '98 and Dominican Piloto Cubano taste like, this is a cigar that will give you just that.
The Davidoff The Master Selection 2008 smokes well now and will smoke only better with age. It has a great flavor profile that changes throughout and while the flavors are core flavors in the sense that they are always present, it is their dominance which changes and that is always a fun experience.
This sophomore release from Plasencia is the best cigar they have released year to date. The flavor profile is complex with a nice bit of depth and it has this great medium-full body and strength level throughout. Why the company did not have their own brand years ago baffles me, but I am glad they are here now.
In some samples, the rum barrels are more pronounced and those tend to be sweeter and creamier, but even samples which are less pronounced still deliver that flavor at a softer, less sweet level. This is really an enjoyable cigar that you need to spend some time on.
This was a solid Goldie and I think it will do well with consumers, mostly because of the size, but it is not my favorite of the Goldies. With time, the flavors will develop in the second and final third, knock on wood, and that will help the cigar in terms of flavors. With that being said, the draw and construction were great and a majority of cigar smokers will truly enjoy.
There is depth from start to finish, transitioning throughout and it never lacked the complexity that you expect from an ultra-premium cigar. The balance between the flavors is fantastic and the changing pepper and spice notes is simply great.
This is possibly one of the best Caldwell releases I have had, and the blend smokes well throughout the line. It is a blend that needs some time aging though and I believe it smokes better after being stored at a lower humidity level.
