I am starting off another series review for your enjoyment. This time it is going to be the Cigar.com house blends. All of these will be in the robusto size (5 x 50).
First one is going to be the Cameroon Label.
Checking out the Cigar.com Cameroon Label and the cigar feels a little hard but not too awful bad. On the other ones the cigar felt a little soft so we will see if this effects anything. Scent coming from the wrapper is a slight sweetness and tobacco and the foot really is not giving anything off of it other than maybe a tobacco scent.
Clipped the cap and was met with a draw that was tighter than the other ones I have smoked so far but hopefully it will not be problematic.
Lit up with no problems at all and off we go.
Entering the first half of this Cigar.com Cameroon Label house blend and the main taste up front is a very earthy taste with a slight hint of sweetness (I imagine from the cameroon wrapper) and a slight spice.
Smoke volume is nice and even though the draw is tighter than I normally like, it seems to be smoking well.
Very dry and earthy.
That line above describes the entire first half almost completely. I also got a bit more of the sweetness and the spice picked up just a little, especially on the retrohale.
Really not much else to say. Oh, it is a mild smoke at this point.
Heading down the home stretch of this Cigar.com Cameroon Label with the dry earthy taste very far in the lead and the sweetness and spice a half lap behind.
Earthy taste has continued through the end but the sweetness seemed to pick up a bit also. Some of the others have turned a little harsh at the end but this one did not. Might have been from the loose draw on the others.
Rounding out this Cigar.com Cameroon Label and it is basically a straight forward smoke. I did not find anything really enthusiastic about it nor was it terrible. Middle of the road would be a good term for this stick.
This cigar fits well at the $2.50 a stick price and even better if they run them on sale.
Would I buy any more? Well I will have to wait and see which is the best out of the bunch but with the non-enthusiasm I got from this stick, I am doubtful I would pick a box up unless I wanted to hold on to them and age them for a year or so but I may keep a 5-pack around for a quick non-attentive smoke.
