I picked this up at Got Cigars? in downtown Decatur a few weeks back and got to try it. The pre-light has heavy raisin and mulled wine tastes. Dark wrapper has no noticeable flaws. Speckled slightly, giving hope of spice.
6×60 and felt so right in my fingers!
The Cigar starts off easily with hints of red pepper and spice along with slight oak flavors.
Then it picks up as the smoke burns evenly, with hints of cocoa and bourbon barrel flavors.
The burn line corrected after a few minutes and the flavors became more like baking spices.
Coffee notes develop along with chocolate sweetness and light earth. With a medium to full bodied finish that lingers, this is a definite keeper in the humidor.

I’ve been waxing poetic lately about the local finds here in Atlanta/Decatur and this bourbon is no exception. Still with the age statement on it, indicating they haven’t run out of good juice yet, Eagle Rare’s 10 year DPS offering offers the bourbon connoisseur a lighter bodied, yet fully flavored bourbon in the same bottle.
It doesn’t require a cube like the DPS edition of 1792 did, as the alcohol has a perfect balance between mellow and spice to pair with any cigar you want to throw at it.
Yes, I mean any. Be it something as luxurious as Don Cervantes or a heavy pepper bomb like anything the magnificent Don Pepin Garcia makes, this bourbon will pair nicely with it.
At the start of the year, I’m going to stock up on different liquors so we can play a new game. Cocktail hour!
