Rigoletto Black Jack
Rigoletto Black Jack cigars are machine made in Tampa, Florida using a mild to medium blend of high quality Dominican filler tobaccos and homogenized sheet binder rolled in Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro wrappers. For the money, they make a decent every day smoke.
I used to buy these in 5 packs at the food store . Like a good many cigars with homogenized binder , they get that off taste at some point [ at least to me ] . However , the off taste appears far enough down while the majority of the cigar is pretty good ! It starts off kinda chocolaty and stays in one dimension till the end . All in all a good smoke , especially for the money ! The Black Arrow is good too as well as the Rigoletto Dominican , which are better .
Great everday smoke, perfect for the long day on the sound striper fishing. A perfect 85+ rating with a great draw and the taste I expect from a much more expensive cigar. I always wind up smoking them to the nub and they never smoke hot. I started buying these in my local durg store in the four pack and found them very dry but the taste was still good. Bought a box placed them in my humidor for a month and wow! what a difference. P.S. My Grand Father who live in Florida would drive to the very source to buy these and he knew his stuff. He's gone now 25 years but every time I smoke one I feel like he's right here having a smoke with me. Try a few it just might become your everyday favorite.
I've been enjoying cigars for over 10 years, and Black Jack was my first happy discover. It is a consistent, well constructed, dark beauty that I have never been afraid to smoke even around some of my boutique smoking brothers in arms. I knew I had picked the right go-to cigar, when walking through a humidor in New Orleans I spotted a solitary yellow box tucked a top a shelf of bundled custom handrolls. The humidor 5 pack can't be bear for convienence either. Keep up the good work.
