Staff Standouts Vol. 7
Last week we did hosted a cigar and hat event with Davidoff. I wasn’t sure how well it would be received, but the feedback was incredible. During the event we smoked and discussed the Davidoff Millennium. It’s a cigar that a lot of guests have not experienced before and it really got them excited. I’ve had the luxury of smoking it in the past, but I forgot how good it was. While it is has a dark oily Ecuadorian wrapper, it doesn’t have the strength you might expect. It comes in at a perfect medium and delivers notes of sweet chocolate, coffee and caramel, offering a slight pepper component through the nose.
My favorite cigar to come out of Matt Booths Room101 cigars is the OG Farce Habano; with much complexity and flavor to keep me craving more over and over again. I feel this cigar to be a solid medium in strength and medium to full or even full in its flavor profile. Leather, cedar, chocolate, hay and white pepper are what my mouth sensor picks up. Coffee, my preferred pairing as always is what I’ll have with this cigar. If you haven’t had one, you’re missing out!
I've been finding myself enjoying more and more Nicaraguan Tobacco, and Aganorsa grows fantastic tobacco. Not only do they grow fantastic tobacco, they make a damn good cigar as well. While this is not the most popular Aganorsa product here at Renegade, I think this cigar is slept on by our Connecticut fans. It represents a tremendous value and punches way above its price point.
I’ve been in a Drew Estate mood lately, especially with assembling the recent Swag Packs, and the stand out for me is the Undercrown 10. While I do love the Liga Privada No. 9 (when it’s available), the Undercrown 10 offers a lot of the same dark chocolate and sweet notes along with same flawless construction. The Mexican San Andreas wrapper over the broadleaf binder is just perfect to me, and might actually be my favorite San Andreas wrapped cigar in our humidor!
A well balanced smoke of spicy meets smooth. You will notice the flavor morph from creamy to a subtle cedar mixture. A great cigar for the mild to medium smoker looking for a bold strength with a medium flavor.
