Quick Smoke: Augusto Reyes Signature Robusto

19 Sep 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.”

Augusto Reyes Signature

Launched in June, this new Dominican puro by Augusto Reyes features a nearly flawless light brown wrapper. The cigar starts an initial burst of unpleasant leathery bitterness. Fortunately, after a few minutes, it settles into a more balanced combination of cream and wood. Also evident are hints of leather and roasted peanut. Construction is excellent, particularly the draw, which has just the right amount of resistance. This medium-bodied smoke shows some potential, but I’m disappointed with the bitterness, both out of the gate and occasionally after.

Verdict = Hold.
