Quick Smoke: Artisan’s Selection by PG No. 2

22 Feb 2009

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

Made by pre-cigar boom legend Paul Garmirian, this toro (6 x 50) is about as affordable as PG creations get. Sold for around $150 per box, this Connecticut shade-wrapped stogie is oily and rustic with a few veins. It starts off with an initial burst of grass that soon fades into a woody smoke with a hint of anise and excellent balance. As I’ve come to expect from PG, the construction is virtually flawless. Overall, a fine smoke that provides the subtlety and balance of of PG at a more reasonable price point. It pairs perfectly with a well-made Gibson.

Verdict = Buy.
