Cusano LXI Habano “Sun Grown”

 

Hello everyone, today I am reviewing the Cusano Habano LXI “Sun Grown.” I can honestly tell you that I had no intentions of picking up this stick for a review and only came across it when I was gifted it through my friend Matt. Please keep in mind that I am basing this review on one stick. So with that said, I’m now ready to give you my verdict on whether it will passes the mighty “Stew” test or not.

CIGAR MAKE UP:

WRAPPER: Ecuadorian and Dominican

BINDER & FILLER: Dominican / Dominican

Length/Ring: 6  x 54

Shape: Toro Gordo

Strength: Medium

Price: It was gifted but will run you about $7.55

My Observations: This cigar has a tough looking wrapper to it that is surrounded by medium size veins. It’s not a bad looking cigar but it will not receive any awards either.

  • On my finger touch inspection, I found no soft spots or imperfections. I rated it a “B” in the grading department.

Cigar Label: Pretty interesting with its wonderful artwork thats consists of black, gold, yellow, red, and orange colors.

Snip: Straight cut.

Pre-Draw: Smooth with a cedar taste.

Flavors: The 1st third of this cigar consisted of wood, coffee, spice, and small traces of spice. The 2nd third continues with these flavors and noting else. The last third finished as it started and to tell you the truth I was kind of hoping for a change that never came.

Draw: Smooth.

Burn line: Bit jagged.

Liked it: Didn’t hate it but not really interested in seeking out some more!

Recommend it: I would have to say only if you have some money burning a hole in your pocket.

Hint: None

OVER ALL

Until Next Time

CroMagnon Cranium

 

 

Hello everyone, today I am bringing you a special review of a cigar produced from my good friend Skip from Twitter. Now please keep in mind that my rating on this cigar won’t be affected by our twitter friendship “period!” I can say up front though that Skip knows his cigars and would never put his name and reputation on average cigar. Ok so what is this cigar and who carries it you ask? Well its name is CroMagnon and you can only get it from Skip’s online shop Hava Cigar Shop. Skip has a variety of cigars to offer you in the CroMagnon line so head on over there and check them all out.

Today, I am reviewing the Cranium for your reading enjoyment so now,  I’m ready to give you my verdict on whether it will pass the mighty “Stew” test or not.

 

CIGAR MAKE UP:

 

WRAPPER: Connecticut Broadleaf

BINDER & FILLER: Cameroon / Nicaragua

Length/Ring: 6  x 54

Shape: Toro

Strength: Medium to Full

Price: I paid $40.00 for a 5 pack.

 

 

My Observations: This cigar is just top-notch from the head to the foot in the appearance department. Believe me once you twirl this bad boy in your fingers, you too will be overly impressed with its makeup. Now add its beautiful oily dark leaf wrapper that is surrounded by beautiful medium size veins and you have perfection.

  • On my finger touch inspection, I found no soft spots and this cigar easy gets an “A” in the grading department.

 

Cigar Label: None

Snip: Straight cut.

Pre-Draw: Very smooth with a slight peppery taste.

Flavors: The 1st third of this cigar starts off like a fire cracker with a pure pepper blast that just wows you immediately. Now after five minutes the pepper begins to mellow out and is quickly replaced by a deep rich dark chocolaty madness. The 2nd third continues with the rich dark chocolate which is suddenly joined by a wonderful espresso flavor. The last third finished up with these wonderful flavors and I was truly sad that my smoking experience was over.

 

Draw: Smooth.

Burn line: Straight as an arrow.

Liked it: It truly blew me away!

Recommend it: You would have to be a fool not to try it!

Hint: Box worthy purchase for sure!

 

OVER ALL

Until Next Time
