Cabaiguan Belicoso Fino
5 1/2 x 52 - Natural - Single
Cabaiguan Belicoso Fino premium cigars are blended by Jose Pepin Garcia with rich-tasting Nicaraguan tobaccos rolled in oily Ecuadorian Connecticut wrappers, and finished with a Cuban-style triple-cap. The smoke is medium-bodied with earthy, toasty flavors, and light, peppery notes on the finish.
What can I say? I LOVE this cigar. After a winning bid on Cigar Auctioneer (great deal), I promptly received this amazing 5-pack. The stick is well-crafted; cuts, lights and burns great; my cigar had a perfect draw; subtle peppery mouthfeel from the wrapper with a rich, creamy nose that gets more and more smooth as you work your way through the smoke. Approachable, mild-to-medium cigar that's personal favorite! A must-try! If the price-point is too high, periodically check Cigar Auctioneer!
Flavor was good, but the construction is just AWFUL. the wrappers are very thin, filled with pinholes and split everywhere. My wooden humi is controlled by Boveda packs to 70%, so over-humidification was not the cause. 3 of the 5 I bought were unsmokable. Get a Camacho or RP instead.
After smoking a few from my 5-pack, I suppose this cigar is just not my cup of tea. Maybe I was expected too much. Don't get me wrong, it's a fine cigar -- full of flavor and unlike most of the other DPG concoctions, this cigar is not overpowering at all -- very smokeable. But at nearly $10 a stick (well over that as singles in B&Ms), there's one thing this cigar does have in common with all of DPG's pricier smokes: They're only worth half of the asking price (if that) ... there are many much finer cigars out there for a lot less money than these Cabaiguans.
The Cabaiguan Belicoso Fino is nicely constructed cigar. But that's where the nicety ends, as the draw was firm which forced me to cut down more than I usually do for a "torpedo." What flavors I was able to get from the very firm draw was a bit of coffee with toffee. Wish the draw was better or perhaps the one I had was not prepped right.
