Cigar Review – Diamante by PROPIO

Diamante by PROPIO

Another PROPIO release that came out not too long ago, this cigar’s blend I’m not sure of but I might have notes in my email – which I’ll add later. The first bit though, is the dark wrapper that’s a little toothy. Has a few veins but otherwise is smooth. In sticking with the classic old school PROPIO bands of black, red and silver, the cigar is an excellent addition to the PROPIO line up and one for smokers who prefer more old school tastes.

The cigar, like all ACC cigars is triple capped and rolled entubado, to get more leaves into the blend and allow for deeper customization of said blend. A pre-light draw reveals fresh stone fruit and that familiar raisin, but something else too, that’s almost like mulled wine.

When I toasted the foot of the Diamanté, bright gray semi-spicy smoke emitted from the foot. The taste on this cigar is pretty straight forward. What I’ve been noticing as mulled wine exists, but also those rich stone fruit notes. It’s got a darker, riper, different sort of richness than other PROPIO cigars, and rounds out the portfolio nicely.

Only information I can get you to a website would be ACC’s site.

Outside of that, I’ve had a lot of cigars during the winter months that fit my palate, and kind of induce a holiday feeling, because you’d think more of those mulled wine flavors, and harvest, and picking up a cigar with a richness such as the Diamante has just reinforces not just quality, but the time spent on a product that delivers an experience you can remember for a long time.  Trust me.

Luxury Cigar Reviews: Propio Veneno by ACC Cigars

From ACC Official:  PROPIO cigars are the most innovative

Unique Acrylic and Aluminium tubes with an air-tight glass seal

cigars in the market today. Using aged and carefully fermented tobacco leaves, ACC has spent years creating  new blends and flavors including wild grown tobacco from the rain forests of Ecuador and Peruvian Pelo de Oro. The result is something new and exciting giving cigar smokers a totally new experience.

What I noted in the unique smell of the PROPIO line was that it was replicated ‘almost’ as if the owner had given Jonathan Drew something to aspire to in his Undercrown and Liga blends, due to the very similar sweet room notes.  While Liga Privada is sought after and hard to come by, nothing can compare to the extravagance of PROPIO.  Plus, they were both developed for different clientele so..

PROPIO VENENO

I mentioned PROPIO in an earlier review when talking about the Leon, a personal favorite of mine.

The PROPIO cigar brand was developed with a fast pace, modern look and feel, included in both the revolutionary acrylic and  aluminium tube packaging for the PROPIO cigars, but even their accessories showcase uniqueness among their peers.

The VENENO or Venom, is no different.  A blend all its own, it stands out from the Leon by having more spice, power.  Designed to imitate (and surpass) Cuban blends, the VENENO features a rich Habano leaf, and Santa Lucia, a leaf indigenous to the tribes of Ecuador.  On it’s own, Santa Lucia is a powerhouse and cannot be smoked but if paired with the Ecuadoran Habano leaf, one not only gets the power, but finesse created by skillful blending.

More of a fuller body cigar than the Leon, the VENENO draws and burns well, is smooth.  Pepper comes across, along with hints of cinnamon.  A medium to full finish complete the cigar, complimented with plenty of spice, and a pleasant, sweet smell when burned, the PROPIO VENENO is literally every cigar smokers dream.  Uncomplicated, inventive, luxurious.
