Quick Smoke: Paul Garmirian 15th Anniversary Belicoso Extra

29 Dec 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.” This Quick Smoke is part of our “Win a Big Box of Cigar Swag” contest.

I’ve been smoking some fine cigars this holiday season, but perhaps none as complex or expertly balanced as the Belicoso Extra (6.75 x 52) from Paul Garmirian’s 15th Anniversary line. True, the smoke normally costs upwards of $14. And the one I smoked for this write-up had been resting in my humidor for over 18 months. You’d expect a lot from such an investment of money and time. What I found thankfully met my expectations: excellent construction and a wonderful, full-bodied profile of cedar, melon, cinnamon, and pepper. If you haven’t tried the 15th Anniversary yet, you’re missing out.

Verdict = Buy.

    This stick sounds pretty interesting, albeit slightly above my price comfort zone. But if I can find one, I'll try one.

    I agree, would like to experience melon flavor in a cigar. Will need to check the local B&M for one of these.

    Sounds good, have not seen this cigar before, might,if I see it, might if my wallet has an extra $15. Thanks for the info.
