Quick Smoke: Intemperance EC XVIII The Faith

11 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.”

On the recommendation of Intemperance (and CroMagnon) co-owner Skip Martin, I lit this Ecuadorian Connecticut-wrapped short perfecto (5 x 50) up in the morning with a cup of coffee. (I defied his suggesting that I do it with a New York Times and went with the Wall Street Journal instead.) It’s a medium-bodied cigar with plenty of cedar, roasted notes, and hints of spice and cream. Well-constructed with decent balance, for seasoned full-bodied cigar smokers, it’s a good first smoke of the day. But that doesn’t mean it would be out of place after dinner with a stronger drink.

Verdict = Buy
