Quick Smoke: EO Mi Barrio El Acere

14 Aug 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.”

EO Mi Barrio El Acere

When I reviewed this cigar one year ago, I found it to be agreeable yet slightly disappointing given its pedigree and price point. Time has neither improved nor diminished the El Acere. It still carries a salty, airy flavor that overshadows its tastier notes of cedar and dark chocolate. It burns well enough but, for a cigar that retails for around $10 per single, I can think of many better balanced smokes worthy of my time and money.

Verdict = Hold.

    I'm not arguing with you (and couldn't, because taste is so subjective), but I absolutely adore this cigar. I've bought a couple of boxes of them, and I worry about finishing off my supply.

    Great review, as always, but please leave them for me.
