CEM Dubnium The Cheshire Cat
"CEM Dubmium Cheshire Cat"
The good points to this cigar are that if you like traditionals, this is a good one. It s not overly strong, nor is it harsh, or creamy. It s a nice middle-of-the-road smoke. The price is really good to. Construction is sturdy and allows for a buildup of quite a bit of ash. The texture of the wrapper is pretty smooth, like a fine cotton fabric.
The few bad things happen to be that in being unique, they cigar has a terribly wide band on it that dosen;t comes off easily and can t be left on when smoking because of it s size. I suppose you could leave it on, but that might make things difficult. I m also not the biggest fan of box-pressed cigars. They don t fit as comfortably in my jaw.
Lastly, the box is unique in it s art, but it s particleboard/clapboard.
The drawbacks to this cigar are mostly cosmetic and preferential, but I think quite highly of it because it is constructed quite well and has a ncie traditional flavor that s not too bold, nor is it too weak.

"Exactly what I wanted from it"
Tried the Gold on a whim when ordering some other of my staples. Didn t have any of the construction or burn issues of the other reviewer on any of the 5 I have burned so far. Taste was very mild but nice on a cool spring night with friends.

"Outstanding Cigar! Not a gimmick!"
I bought a five pack of these cigars and it was a mistake. The rich, complex flavor consisted of deep tobacco, spice, herbs with a long, satisfying flavor. I had to get 20 more. Michael Giannini is not only a cigar maker, but a genius. I have two parting words for this cigar. BOX WORTHY! Most importantly, I have bought cigars from every online retailer over the past 8 years, and this is not an exaggeration. Famous Smoke is the only online cigar retailer that I have bought my cigars from, consistently, for the last 5 years straight. Fresh cigars, outstanding service, combined with the best price and selection. There is none better.

"Great unusual cigar!"
I smoked one of these last night and all I can say is Wow! These cigars certainly live up to the hype. This is a dark box pressed beauty. The pre-burn aroma %26 taste were different with an aged tobacco/dark chocolate taste. Burn was even. Draw was medium. The taste was the unique part creamy, some cocoa, and vanilla. I have never experienced a cigar with such an ever evolving taste profile. The cigar remained smooth right down to the nub. Compare this to a good red wine with a complex profile. I have had pricier cigars that delivered a lot less. Try some before they are gone forever!

I tried the AU - Gold cigar. The cigar had construction issues. The wrapper was falling apart while being smoked but I could have just gotten a bad one in the batch. The Gold was a mild to medium cigar with hints of cream, leather and slight sweetness. Just an ok cigar in my opinion and had some burn issues as it was uneven.
