I’m back! Thanks for everyone wondering where I was the past week. Had some family business going on so I was away from the site for most of last week. Thanks to Walt & Brian for holding down the fort while I took some personal time.
I bring you the Lonsdale sized (6.5″ x 44) Don Tomas Dominican Selection with its Dominican wrapper, Mexican binder and interesting four country filler from the Dominican, Nicaragua, Mexico and Brazil. This is supposed to be a full bodied cigar.
I loved this cigar in my humidor. The reddish hue from the wrapper and the its box pressed shape are attractive.
Easy draw and had a real even burn in the beginning but after the first third, the burn started to get a little erratic. I’ve experienced this with other box pressed cigars so it wasn’t that much of a surprise. Flavor profile was a rich earthy taste with some woodsy notes, mostly cedar. Every now and then I got the occassional taste of coccoa but mostly that earthy, cedar taste I mentioned.
I was sad to learn that this cigar has been discontinued as it was a very well balanced cigar. Maybe not the full bodied cigar thats advertised but only a notch or so below that but otherwise a well balanced cigar that could fit in any rotation.
Video runs a bit over 12:00 minutes and I reveal the sex of the little Cruz baby-to-be and enjoy listening to “Fly By Night” by Rush. Look for Episode 6 of My Questions, Your Answers this weekend.

Welcome back Jerry! Sorry to hear about your Aunt.
Congrats on the little robusto!
Hi Jerry and welcome back
Sorry to hear about your aunt aswell. and congratulations on your little baby boy.
great review as always and keep it up. iv watched all your videos and i think your reviews are great, unfortunately i live in england, and most of the cigars you review are hard to get hold of. but still loving the reviews
looking forward to hooking up with you when you get to Toronto. Smoking with you will be a blast!
I have this feeling that Jerry will fall in love with Cubans in Canada and won’t come back to the States. At least you will be close to RIM and get a job with them Jerry! 🙂
Congratulations on your little baby boy! I just had a baby boy and there is nothing like a bond between father and son.
Congrats! What are you gonna name the little one?
He’ll fall in love with the cubans but not with the prices.
Make sure you pack plenty for the trip.
Will be great to meet you in person Jerry; nice review on the Don Tomas.
my condolences on your Aunt’s passing.
