Quick Smoke: Bucanero Don Douglas Belicoso

2 Aug 2008

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief take on a single cigar.

While I enjoyed Bucanero’s Treasure and Cañon Cubano, this is definitely my favorite blend from Robert Spoden’s impressive boutique outfit. The 6 inch by 54 ring gauge Belicoso boasts creamy notes of oak and spice and a wonderful burn with a finely layered white ash. If you let the $6-7 per stick price prevent a purchase you’ll miss out on a great cigar.

Verdict = Buy.

    This is why I love this site…I've never heard of this brand and now a trusted source has reviewed it and I will gladly try it. One thing though: On multiple cigar seller sites, this Belicoso is measured at 6×54, just want to verify whether the 6×52 measurement was an error on your end or if the online retailers are carrying a different stick. Much appreciated.

    Thanks very much for the compliment, Marc. We appreciate your readership and are happy to hear you find informative.

    That said, the error was on my end and has been corrected. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.

    I tried these a few years ago and found them “grassy” and rather non-descript. Perhaps the blend has improved. I will need to get a 5’er. Thanks for the review.

    My son is a Marine DI at Parris Island and will graduate his first cycle in early Sept. I am looking for a congrats smoke to share with him!
