This little guy is something nice. It’s a limited batch cigar that is only released to a limited number of shops around the country. Not every PG shop can get it, as they limit the supply to keep it ever-available.
When you light it you get that Dominican signature that only comes off the countries finest cigars. It lights up nicely, and stays that way. The taste builds up just a touch with similar notes to the Connoisseur, but a nice variation thereof. The flavor build up as the oils coalesce, and some notes of cedar slowly fade in… just like you would want it to in a prime Dominican.
Towards the end it perks up with a bit of natural sweetness (in the right way). The palette is well saturated, and it’s a nice complement.
The finish is solid, and leaves you feeling satisfied. The only thing lacking is… more. I like the Short Robusto, but the larger Connoisseur size is what I will be getting next time.
The Wrapper: Dead Smooth and even.
The Ash: White, clean, and a little soft.
The Value: At ~$16 it’s a reasonable price. Sure, it a bit more than the average stick, but totally worth it.
Would I get it again? Yes. And, hell yes.
