Quick Smoke: Aging Room F55 Quattro Concerto

13 Apr 2013

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.”

Aging Room F55 Quattro Concerto

Ever since my colleague George E awarded this box-pressed, Sumatra-wrapped smoke a perfect five-stogie rating, I’ve been dying to try it. Over the years I’ve learned that George’s tastes are quite similar to my own, so I had high expectations for this specimen from Oliveros Cigars. Firing it up for the first time after about six months of aging, I was not disappointed. It exuded well-balanced notes of coffee creamer, bittersweet chocolate, and dry wood—all of which paired nicely with a glass of zinfandel. The Concerto (7 x 50) also boasted excellent construction and admirable smoke production. The going rate of about $9 apiece is a fair asking price for such a fine cigar.

Verdict = Buy.
