Quick Smoke: Boardwalk Pyramid

6 Feb 2011

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.”


Someone generously gave me this value-oriented Holt’s house blend, which sells by the box for under $2 per stick. With a dark Nicaraguan wrapper, a Nicaraguan binder, and filler from four countries (Nicaragua, the Dominican Republic, Honduras, and Brazil), the Boardwalk Pyramid has the potential to punch above its weight. Ultimately, it features mostly earthy flavors with an unpleasant sour taste that goes in and out. And the medium-bodied smoke has nothing in the way of balance or finesse.  For the price I didn’t expect much (and it does have solid construction) but this cigar’s flavors just don’t deliver.

Verdict = Sell.

    On another site, someone says these take a year to be okay and 2 years to be good. I like to spend max. of $1.20 to wait to be okay or good in a yr. or 2. Thanks for reviewing some cheap ones.
