Quick Smoke: Paul Garmirian 15th Anniversary Celebration

11 Apr 2010

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief verdict on a single cigar of “buy,” “hold,” or “sell.”


This nine inch, 50 ring gauge behemoth starts out with a burst of pepper before settling into a savory, well-balanced smoke. Dressed in a Colorado brown five-year-old Nicaraguan wrapper, the cigar is a bit bumpy near the foot, but otherwise flawlessly constructed with excellent combustion characteristics. Despite it’s large size, only one match was needed to keep the Celebration lit. As it progresses, subtle cedar flavors create a medium- to full-bodied smoke with notes of cocoa and black pepper. This isn’t an everyday cigar (at around $20 it wasn’t designed to be). But if you’re looking for a special cigar to enjoy for over two full hours, it’s an excellent choice.

Verdict = Buy.
