Anyway, I wanted to tell you about a cigar that a friend of mine gave me a while back. I've never heard of the brand before, but that's not saying much.
Box-pressed, firm dark chocolate wrapper, not a bad looking cigar.
So how did I like it? Meh... it was OK. Draw was lacking, didn't produce the big plumes of smoke that I like. Taste was different - I didn't think it was terrible or anything, but my lovely wife commented that she didn't like the taste at all. There were a couple of burn issues as well, but overall it wasn't bad enough to put out in the ashtray.
Now had I not had a J Fuego Gran Reserva Corojo No.1, right after this cigar, I might not have judge it so harshly, but the J Fuego is a truly spectacular smoke in every category - love those cigars!
Let me know if you've seen or tried the Salonika brand before?
We're going to a little RSVP charity event over at the Vertigo Club tomorrow night - should be fun! Live jazz, cigars, and food - all for a great cause! If you're going, we'll see you there!
