Diablo Gran Fuego

Diablo Picantes Grand Fuego Cigar

Dominican Republic

Editor’s Note: The following review was originally posted at The World According to Stew.

Today’s cigar is the Diablo Picantes torpedo. This is a nice cigar to look at and has a great band which is black, gold, and red. The cigar leaf is jet black and the smell of it before pre-light is very nice. The cigar measures 5×40 and the wrapper is Ecuadorian Sumatra, the binder is Connecticut broadleaf, and the filler is Dominican and Nicaraguan. On inspection the cigar wrapper was nicely wrapped and I saw no imperfections.

OK, the toasting phase was awesome and this baby produced large amounts of grey smoke. The flavors which I tasted during my smoke consisted of various spices which keep you interested throughout the smoke. The ending on this baby produces and more spices which I felt was pure pleasure. This is a medium smoke and will please just about any level cigar smoker.

Smoke time: Over and hour.

Drink of choice: Coffee.

Like it? Yes indeed.

Buy it again? Yes.

Price: Approximately $13.75 for a five pack.

Hint: I scored these from famous smoke shop for seven dollars in the auction.

Suggestion: House them in your humidor for a few months and you will not regret it.

Take Care,
Stew
