OK, so a friend of mine just returned from Hawaii and brought us a few gifts - flowers, chocolates, a typical Hawaiian cutting board, some sand and this cigar that I'm smoking tonight. Volcano cigars. Ever heard of them before? I doubt it. This one is the Chocolate Mac Nut Flavored variety. Yes, you heard me correctly. I opened the glass tube that the cigar came in and immediately smelled the chocolate aroma. I said to myself: "is this for real?" So I grabbed a glass and took out the Balvenie Single Malt Scotch - might as well bring out the big guns if I'm going to smoke a chocolate cigar. (grin) Anyway, I take the cigar out and there's that chocolate smell again, too weird. I light it up thinking that somehow this is going to taste like chocolate as well - no, no dice. It taste just like a normal cigar, not even the wrapper has a chocolate taste, which I guess is good, because if it did I would have chucked it by now. The cigar is somewhat mild, a little tasty, burns well, heck, it's not bad! (did I say that out loud?) I can't say that I would go out of my way to buy one of these, but since it was given to me I think the least I could do is smoke it down to the nub. I'm enjoying it, of course the Balvinie Scotch might have had helped with this evaluation.
My Rating: 7.8
