I am starting off another series review for your enjoyment. This time it is going to be the 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 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

First Half

Starting off this 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.

Second Half

Heading into the second part of this 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 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.

  1. Nice review, keep em coming! Oh right, My request for the next review would be either the Sungrown, Brazilian or Corojo label.

  2. Mike nice review and the cloud of smoke was funny. I have never tried a house blend so Im looking forward to these reviews. Keep up great work.

  3. First of all take off that damn hat! Lol. Nice review series seem like they r pretty good for a house blend. Keep smokin’ bro

  4. Hey Mike –
    I am definitely interested in knowing your thoughts on the Blue Label. It would be awesome if there is a decent mild-medium full-flavor value priced cigar for under 2 bucks a stick.
    Again, this is a great idea and keep up the good work!

  5. I have not found a house blend that I like yet, but after your series I’ll decide if this is one I should try.

  6. Thanks for the review! I had bought a box of these on a whim about a month ago and was pleasantly surprised. A nice, mild smoke and of the ten or so I have smoked the draw was never a problem. If I had to come up with a negative the only beef I would have with this cigar is the construction. A couple of them were a bit loose but I think that would be nitpicking, at best. Of course, YMMV but if you like mild cigars, I agree, these are a great choice for the price.

  7. Really enjoy when you do these Series Reviews Mike. Brings an often overlooked dimension to the site. Keep up the good work.

    Don’t say I never compliment you…LOL
