Cigar Review: Diesel Grind torpedo

I managed to pick up the diesel grind torpedo at got cigars here in Decatur. This was a new blend from AJ Fernandez and came out at this last year’s IPCPR convention in Las Vegas. I’ve smoked two so far and the notes are consistent.

The cold draw really flavor heavy like fruit. From the first light, woodsy taste came across on the first few puffs. Raisin and plum prelight draw.

The first thing I noticed about this cigar was the rustic, basic look of the entire packaging. Simple wooden boxes of 20 cigars, band at the foot only in blue. Reminiscent of a simpler time.

When I lit up the cigar, the first thing I got was toast notes along with heavy earth and white pepper. Around the second third the cigar picks up in body, more intensity on the earthy flavors. Dirt, tobacco. Help the medium bodied finish go out on a good note. The cigar has a good, esau draw. It burned consistently nad had white-ish gray ash.

Decent cigar for a good price.  I’d call it a value smoke, honestly.

11 year anniversary of Highland Cigar Company

Coming up at Highland Cigar Company – Class is in Session!

Cigar Review: π by ACC Cigars – Luxury on a quick break? You bet!

A few years back (almost ten at least) Oliva Cigar Company had picked up the notion of the sweet spot, that second third of a cigar that has all the flavors melded together, in perfection, and named it Nub.  The cigars were short and stout.  Good, but they were meant to smoke as long as a traditional size toro or churchill.

From a luxury standpoint, and one where you want to smoke something of elegance, but don’t have the time to devote a full hour to a cigar like Nub, and you want a really unique way to treat yourself I’d like to introduce you to π by ACC Cigars.  PI, a modern cigar for the enthusiast on the go, measures 3.14 inches, and comes in 46, 48 and 50 ring gauges.

π by ACC Cigars

Superb construction, as with anything ACC Cigars puts out, means a triple cap, entubado bunching, and an experience worth repeating, just because the  cigars have an outstanding taste.  Among luxury brands, it’s truly one of the first concept cigars in the industry.

Straight burn line, the cigar itself is so well rolled it, like numerous other cigars in the Don Cervantes line (or anything ACC makes for that matter) can stand on its ash.  Flavor profile?  Very smooth, yeast and bread notes, along with a hint of baking spice make this the perfect cigar for those on the go.  More complex than cigars of the same size, yet just as relaxing, the cigar definitely stands on its own merit.    I’d also consider for those who smoke in the morning, to pair PI in any size with your favorite medium roast blend as it would compliment your coffee better than anything else.

π by ACC Cigars – a case of eight cigars, matches and a humidifying device for a sleek design.

The packaging is sleek as well.  PI comes in metal tins of eight cigars, complete with a humidification device and matches that always work, another attribute to the care of quality behind an ACC product.  The design of the metal container is more modern, in line with thinking about Fibonacci lines/spirals.
