Guest Quick Smoke: J.L. Salazar y Hermanos Reserva Especial Robusto

23 Sep 2007

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief take on a single cigar. The following is a Guest Quick Smoke, submitted by a reader for our Quick Smoke Cigar Giveaway contest. If you’d like to submit your own for publication, please contact us.

The J.L. Salazar y Hermanos Reserva Especial is a beautiful, box-pressed, full-bodied cigar with a rich, dark wrapper. This robusto measures five and 1/2 inches with a ring gauge of 52. The draw is effortless; I’m immediately hit with a smooth, creamy taste of nutty, woody, earthly flavors. Taking a moment to recover from my nicotine buzz, I admired the long ash still holding strong. Great construction, even burn. The flavor stays solid to the end, leaves me without any signs of harshness or bitterness.

Verdict = Buy.

Submitted by Dustin from New Hampshire, who will receive one of five Arganese samplers.
