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).
Second one is the Purple Label.
We have a nice looking stick today in this Cigar.com Purple Label. Very silky smooth connecticut wrapper but the wrapper nor the foot give off much of a scent other than a mild natural tobacco.
Clipped the cap, and got a nice open draw with a hint of wood flavoring.
Set the fire to the proper end and away we go
Starting off this Cigar.com Purple Label house blend and it gives me a ton of creamy thick smoke with a natural tobacco and woody taste to it.
After smoking for only about a half inch a nutty flavor started creeping in.
Rounding out this first half became a nutty experience. The nutty flavor overtook everything else as the dominant flavor but kept a slight hint of the wood around. Smoke was still plentiful and creamy.
Super mild smoke. One of the mildest smokes out there, in my opinion.
Heading into the second part of this Cigar.com Purple Label house blend and I am curious if the nuttiness will stay the dominant flavor till the end or not.
Mostly the flavor stayed the same, with the nutty flavor dominant and a woody taste in the background but a slight tang crept in that gave a bit of a spice taste, especially on the aftertaste.
Still a mild smoke but the creaminess went away as more of the tang crept in.
Burn and smoke volume were great.
Wrapping up this Cigar.com Purple Label house blend and the main thing to say is it is mild, very mild. I really enjoyed this smoke and so far this is at the top of my list out of the two (I know, a whole two) that i have reviewed so far.
This cigar would be great in the morning with some coffee or even while on the golf course. It will not blast you with flavors that will take your mind from what you are doing but is a very nice mellow smoke.
Would I buy this one again? Definitely. I may end up snagging a couple boxes of these to keep around.
