Quick Smoke: Hoja de Flores

18 Mar 2012

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.”

I’ll admit I hadn’t heard of this new Dominican puro until a friend pointed it out to me when I was visiting one of my local cigar shops. The $10 smoke features a a medium brown corojo wrapper with just a bit of shine. I don’t know the exact size but I’d guess it’s about 6 inches long with a ring gauge of 52. It starts off very mild with slightly damp woody notes. I nearly wrote it off as bland and boring when, about a third of the way in, it developed a more interesting edge with cedar and cinnamon spice, and became more medium-bodied. With excellent construction, it was good enough that I’d want to try a few more before rendering a full judgement.

Verdict = Hold

    I think I got mine at the McClean PG Boutique, but that was a year ago. Don't know if they still carry them.
