Quick Smoke: Dissident Bloc B_A

20 Oct 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.”


A highly unique band takes for its inspiration an old 8-bit color video game complete with names that I’m not even going to try to describe. Made in Nicaragua, the cigar has a medium brown Nicaraguan Habano wrapper from the Jalapa region that surrounds dual Nicaraguan binders and filler from Mexico and Nicaragua. It features lots of cedar, a tannic tingle on the tongue, and hints of coffee and black pepper spice. Construction is notably flawless and the balance is excellent.

Verdict = Buy.
