Diablo Picantes Grand Fuego CigarDominican 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 5Ã—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.
