The first of the lot that completely failed. I think the cigar had a hole in the middle and drew in air from it, but even so the the draw seems a bit too much, except for the last half. Also the topmost leaves peeled off after 1/3 was smoked. The taste is a bit leathery and woody, but not very disdinctive. A nice mild cigar that suffers from shoddy worksmanship
Known as Jesus Fuego's 'ugly little stick', I came across this unusual cigar in a 'Le Snob Guide to Cigars' that I got for Christmas and went looking for them. The story is that master blender Jesus and his father always tested blends by picking up a whole leaf and wrapping it round the blend of the day. This results in these ugly little sticks that are hand rolled without any form of press so no two are ever alike. He had the blend for his Natural range in his pocket in two of these samplers when a friend visited and this was all he had to offer him to smoke. The friend liked it so much he suggested that it should be the next vitola for that range. Great story don't you think? They are sold in packets of five in paper packets with a pull string at the top that rips it open. The cigars are 5" long with an average ring gauge of 44 and no cap, just light the fat end and stick the thin end in your mouth. They are very firm to the squeeze and the wrapper looks like a maduro with an oily finish and no raised veins. The wrapper is from Brazil, the binder from Costa Rica and the filler from Honduras and Nicaragua. The wrapper has no discernible scent other than tobacco and the unlit draw is very light and easy. It lit very easily and produced lots of smoke. It started off with a very mild and clean tasting tobacco flavour and burned very well indeed. The ash was a very pale grey; almost white, and was holding on at the inch and a half mark when it split in half length ways so I tapped it off. After about half way it produced a little pepper that came and went and the burn slowed down as it reached the fat bit. The flavour can only be described as like toasted walnuts with just a hint of bitterness and a clean mouth feel and it lasted a good hour for me with just one relight required. This is certainly one I shall be keeping for a short smoke and will probably attract some attention due to its unconventional look when everything else on the market is so tidy and regular nowadays.
Am Anfang sehr scharf und pfeffrig wird dann etwas geschmeidiger und ausgewogener. Asche eher dunkelgrau und bleibt etwa 2 cm stehen. Zigarre war mir nicht fest genug, der Zug war zu leicht. Im Ganzen ist sie mir zu scharf und bringt zu wenig andere Aromen. Nicht meine Zigarre, auch nicht für den kleinen Preis.
