A Cigar’s Tale ‘Short Story’ Review XXX
April 3rd, 2017
This time around, I am reviewing a sample from the 2016 IPCPR called 1834, which ‘flies’ under Por Larranaga banner. This cigar comes to me as a Toro-sized 6 inches long by 50 ring gauge vitola. Its wrapper is an Ecuadorian Connecticut, while the binder and filler come from the Dominican Republic. These cigars run about $9.00 each.
Looking over the 1834, I note the caramel colored wrapper, which is quite uneven in its tone and is also veiny. The cigar is firm with tight, almost nonexistent seams. Scents coming off the wrapper include mesquite, smoke, leather, cumin, cream and brown sugar. The foot shows some raisin, zest, cocoa, cream, butter, white pepper and hay. The cold draw presents with molasses, brown sugar and leather.
